Paris People ~ 'Spot The Expat' Quiz

POSTED IN:  ~ PeopleQuiz

Real Expat, or Flimsy Cardboard
Cut-out? You decide...
 Is That A Baguette You're Holding...

... or are you just pleased to be here?

Stimulated by a fascinating discussion about American tourists, and whether they have the right to complain, and whether bloggers have the right to complain about American tourists who complain, and whether... well anyway, it was on Melissa's Prête-Moi Paris blog here, and I thought I'd organise a little competition based on some of my Paris street photography, whilst blatantly trying to syphon off some of Melissa's readers, as she obviously has far more than me a large, loyal and friendly following...

Here then are a few pics of people taken in Paris, and the challenge is to guess which are tourists, which are expats and which are just, well, French quoi! Click on the words 'Now play the quiz!' below to... play the quiz.

A new window will open where you can make your choices while looking at the pictures below. Your score is always given at the top of the  page, and if your first answer is wrong you can have another go and try to grab back a few percentage points...

It's all in good fun, with a large element of luck, but do leave a comment to say how you did or ask for any clarifications about the pics!

I'll give you some very simplified definitions of those terms just for this activity:

   A Tourist: just here on holiday and for a few days
   An Expat: a non-Frenchy who is living or working in Paris for a while
   A Parisian: a French person who is living in his or her own country

Hi Prete...
I had 'an issue' with my quiz provider, so had to change systems - have another go and you'll get a percentage this time... :-D
