During summer, I spent a few days in Paris at one of my friend’s place, I wanted to see some «civilization » between two travels, go to some exhibitions and visit friends and family who live in Paris.
The city, I have to say now that i’s not really my thing anymore, I couldn’t picture myself living in Paris. But you can’t deny that this city is charming, especially the corners where I went chilling and of course all the good food that I quite enjoyed !
Paris is beloved city among foreign people, it carries myth, fantasies, dreams and a romantic frenchie image. It’s almost impossible to walk in Asia without seing 10 girls with an Eiffel Tower on their shirt or an « I love Paris ».
So, I tried to visit Paris this time with new eyes, unused to its speed and looking for the magic which actually were there in the smallest details around the corner.
A very poetic and energetic neighborhood, with the ancient shopwindows, this huge street that bring you to another time. Before urging to Montorgueil street, I stopped in front of the St Eustache church which is amazing, before running to the pastry shop of Christophe Adam, a famous chef, and his store L’Eclair de Génie, where all kinds of eclairs (kind of cream puffs) are sold. I bought a strawberry eclair and it was delicious. I couldn’t go without taking a picture of the floor, nice cement tiles that I like so much.
In the evening, we had diner in the neighborhood Les Batignolles where I stayed in my friend’s apartment, we had something I never tried before, a pizza with truffles, such a treat, I wish I had more.
Which neighborhood do you like the most in Paris ? Did you already tried Christophe Adam’s eclairs ?
