Paris Recommendations?

Hey, Lilly and me are flying to France tonight and will be spending 5 days in Paris before going deeper into the country.

If any Parisians on here have timely recommendations of things happening over the weekend or so, could you please suggest something? Any new gallery openings, cool bars / restaurants to visit? What’s the Paris neighbourhood equivalent of LES, West Queen West or Vila Madalena?

And if anyone is around during those days and wants to grab a drink with us somewhere, we’ll be staying around Buttes Chaumond, send me a message.

Paris" by Jay-Jay Johansen

When I walk the streets of Paris

I can’t stop wondering where is

That bohemian girl who used to stop and say hello

I miss you

I take rue Richelieu

Start at Comédie-Française

Palais-Royal on my right, straight up parallel rue Sainte-Anne

I know this well

I see Place des Victoires

Leave first arrondisement

Pass Bibliothèque nationale, rue Colbert and Augustin

Cross Quatre-Septembre

When I walk the streets of Paris

I can’t stop wondering where is

That bohemian girl who used to stop and say hello

I miss you, I miss you

A moving time lapse of Paris by Luke Shepard

Via global-culture:

If you think time lapse is hard because you have to wait for the camera to take hundreds of photos, imagine the magnitude of this project where Luke had to move the camera for every shot.  2000 shots of Paris, beautifully choreographed.
