Irish guy, living in London with my partner: well travelled, we enjoy all the usual stuff - food, travel and art come top of our list. My partner is from Uzbekistan and he speaks a number of Central Asian languages including Russian, Uzbek, Tajik. He's a part time actor and I work in programme management. We are easy going, and enjoy meeting new people from every part of the world. We enjoy living in London because of the huge variety of things to see and do, and the great mix of people of all nationalities, colours and creeds.
