This is My City

After spending a week seeing Paris through local eyes (and the occasional beer goggle), I must say that I'm loving the new series from my friends Thomas and Tim titled This is My City. Instead of slathering guests with tourist drudgery, the Brooklyn-based artists post weekly Craigsist ads to find a host that will give their personal take on the city and show how the locals really live. They are currently in Lisbon raising hell, but you can expect future episodes in places like Berlin, Belgrade, Berui, Osaka, Melbourne and Wellington. And if you live in one of these places, you may want to check your local Craigslist, as they're still looking for the right host in many of these cities. Check out the Reykjavik Pilot below.
