Extract:

Understand that being a guide is hard work. You know that expression, “You don’t notice good makeup”? The same is true of guiding. If your day went smoothly, it’s because your guide worked hard.  “I wish people would stop asking if I’m a student. . . . That’s the most familiar reason for a young person to be living abroad, but I’m not a student. I’m an adult and this is my job.” If you’re having a great time, tell the guide you appreciate how well he’s managed it. Above all, don’t ever ask a guide, “So, what’s your real job?”
