After a my stream of brilliant flat mates, I was beginning to think that this share accommodation thing was just like every episode of friends.
With the coming of winter I have made certain plans, a key component in these plans being a decent wingman. After all its not a bachelor flat else bachelors live there. So it was with some excitement that a French guy got in contact with me to stay for 6 weeks.
After some basic facebook stalking I found his profile page with a picture of him mountain biking. Our conversations over email also went well with discussion of other such manly bachelor things as Czech beer and the local pubs. He also worked for Apple so would have a large resource of colleagues from the furthest reaches (and best looking) parts of Europe.
So I thought this was a great deal and had visions of our duo of French style and charm together with my South Africanism would devastate the local female population.
