See rainy Paris and stay live

See Paris and die! Heard, probably more than once? So, by our humble opinion, there is absolutely no need to die, although to see Paris is possible. But this is not the city to die for. Although Does such a city exist at all? By this I want to say that not we are so impressed with this famous city to fall in love with it, what our compatriots often do. Under the “stay live” I have in mind “do not die” :)

Yes, this is France, yes, the capital of this beautiful country, but Paris is a fairly ordinary French city, and there is nothing in it radically different. I liked him, but just like everything the rest of the city of France. Perhaps the blame was incessant rain?

In Paris, we arrived by train from Grenoble. Tickets have been bought in in a hurry, as an option with a kovvatyurazh (hitchhiking with payment of gasoline) broken off, and at that time it was the only option. We lived in Paris at the guys we found through couchsurfing. However, the path to he was thorny and long.

Since couchsurfing is not suitable for everyone, and hotels in Europe are better. To book in advance, here I will recommend you:

  • Family residence
  • Hotel de LEsperance See rainy Paris and stay live

Do not forget to check discounts on the Roomguru service where you can see prices for the same hotel in different booking systems. On the example of hotels above:

We arrived late in the evening at the station Gare de Lion. Paris we are not They knew completely, and of course they did not know that the metro did not even work o’clock in the morning, and the transplant and even less. In general, the subway closed in the most inopportune moment. Navigator, the most brazen way refused to find the address of the guys. Only later did we learn that Paris – this is only the center of the city, and all areas nearby are other populated points, with no visual boundaries between them. So guys lived, already in another city, as much as 40 minutes on foot from the center Of Paris.

We stand, therefore, at 2 am, lost in the Place de la Bastille, torturing the navigator, and vainly catching some wifi with a laptop, and heaps to us a crowd of blacks. I somehow immediately crumbled a bit, their much the same. Seeing our faces, one of them immediately began to speak – peace, liberty, they say how to help. Who would have thought? He even iphone I got mine, I also tried to connect to an Internet, so that the hotel would be us find, but apparently that night the great god of the internet was not merciful. As a result, we walked 3 hours in the night Paris in search of a hotel with 24-hour reception, and found only a certain gadyushnik for 50 Euro. Toad choked, but wanted to sleep stronger.

By the way, I got the impression that the black population in Paris, 50% or more, and sometimes even thought, and in France, are we Did we teleport us somewhere to Africa?

The next day we came to the guys who welcomed us met, and with whom we happily shared vegetarian food. Wow, meet like-minded people!

For two days we walked in rainy Paris, in its overwhelmed leaves to the streets where regularly met discarded mattresses, went to Notre-Dame de Paris (Notre-Dame de Paris), wandered along the banks of the Seine, near the Pedestrian Arts Bridge (Pont des Arts), looked at the Louvre and the Arc de Triomphe—

The final chord was our way to Orly airport. Arrived with adventures, and left not without them. I almost missed the last subway and bus because of inaccurate information on the Internet, therefore we had to carry with heavy backpacks, like mad.
