In Paris we went in search of a quick, cheap lunch and came across a little patisserie in a quiet street. This young woman spoke English with a Russian accent so we asked where she came from. She was born in Italy to her Russian mother (her English teacher!) and Italian father (a baker). They’d moved to Paris and owned and worked in this little patisserie. She was very shy about having her photo taken, but we had a few laughs and we finished the ‘shoot’ with her playing at being a ‘model’ – it was a fun and lovely experience.
