Across Town

Recently, my future brother-in-law told me that the area Belleville in Paris made a nice change from the more high-rise vistas of the 15th Arrondisement. Both Manu and I enjoy visiting new places, so we made the trip across town to take a look. It certainly is more animated, colourful and typical than other parts of Paris. There are loads of shop fronts packed closely together and I have the impression that it’s more populated than our part of town. We wandered a bit taking in the atmosphere, and soon enough we found this very cool graffitied wall, and cute side street. We didn’t stay too long. Our bellies were rumbling, and the weather was changing.

We headed back to the 15th for a late lunch. Even if it faces high-rise buildings, our lunch destination was still cosy, friendly and welcoming. So while it’s nice to visit new places, it can be equally as nice to come home.

Mon futur beau frère m’a récemment dit que le quartier Belleville était un cartier très agréable et très différent des grand bâtiments du 15ème arrondissement. Manu et moi adorons les quartiers que nous ne connaissons pas, donc nous avons traversé la ville pour le visiter. C’est un quartier qui est beaucoup plus animé, coloré et typique que des autres parties de Paris. Il y a beaucoup de magasins très proches, et cela donne l’impression qu’il y a plus de monde (que dans notre cartier par exemple). Nous nous sommes promenés pour goutter à l’atmosphère du quartier, et nous avons trouvé ce mur tagué ainsi que cette petite rue très mignonne. Nous ne sommes pas resté très longtemps car le temps était très changeant et nous avions assez faim.

On est donc retourné dans le 15ème pour un déjeuner tardif. Même en face de ces grand bâtiments nous avons pris notre déjeuné dans un endroit très sympa et cosy. En resumé, c’est très agréable de visiter de nouveaux endroits, mais c’est aussi agréable de retourner chez soi.

  3. Oh I am digging this look. High waisted ANYTHING is a win in my book. I especially love the stitching on the sleeve of the blouse. Gor-geous. Also, that graffiti wall is great! I don’t imagine Paris to be that way but I bet there are so many nooks and crannies you have yet to discover! xo
