Parisian Favorites

Parisian Favorites

Living in Paris, it is only normal that I should have my own favorite places to go.  That said, these places are by no means the best, the highest quality, or the most appropriate for just anybody.  Still, based on friends and visitors that have been around the city with me, I have a pretty good idea of what will please and what won't, depending on who you are. Don't forget that I've been a student for the past 5 years!

So for 2015, so far, not much has changed:
