Sir: John Lichfield is astonished that he has not been invited into a French home yet (Paris Days, 28 June). How many French people has he invited into his home? This is not meant to be a flip remark: in France, that's the way round it is. It is the newcomer who has to make the first move.

It's no good standing around waiting to be recognised; people will just think you're uncouth.
