    I had this particular Mr. Lee as a guide on my first trip. He told a great story about having to break up with his girlfriend who was also a tourist guide. She was training in Russian to guide Russian tourists and Mr. Lee was training in English. His theory was that as you learned the language and dealt with the tourists directly you began to take on their personality traits. Hence it go to the point where he no longer wanted the relationship to continue.
