THINGS TO DO IN PARIS – [NOVEMBER 2016]

Paris in November has lots of things going on by way of food, music and cultural events in the french capital so lets get into it shall we!

 

Oh wait before we do the usual line up. I want to take a quick moment to say that much has been said and is going on around the refugee crisis (I’ve written many articles in “draft” that I’ve yet had the courage to finish much less publish hear for fear that it may be too “heavy”), but on Saturday at 10am, a few friends and myself are handing out hot tea, coffee and breakfast to refugees at Stalingrad, if you’d like to join us – just email me at myparisianlife (at) gmail.com

 

All of this given that they are there again- as they have been displaced again (by buses yesterday and the last few days as the camps get bigger and bigger in my neighborhood north of Paris along the canal) Read more here

Hang with us: FACEBOOK ** INSTAGRAM ** GOOGLE + ** PINTEREST 

Also we’ll be at Cueillette Coftea shop FRIDAY NOV 4th at 4pm, talking about “Life in Paris” – come with any questions you may have about moving here and join us for a fun afternoon of other conversations too around local Paris experience.

WANDER

la reguliere coffee bookshop rue myrha paris

La Reguliere Coffee ad Book shop – via Yanique Francis

rue Myrha, 75018

The new new is La Goutte D’Or neighborhood – you know that area in Paris you often here “don’t go there” or “thats the bad part of Paris”. There’s so much misconception about this little qaurtier that’s a melting pot. Especially Rue Myrha now has some of my favorite places like African food at Koyaka Kitchen, La Reguliere coffee shop and library, the home decor shop Cocoboheme, the young parisian fashion label Maison Chateau Rouge and Sawa Shoes, not to mention Tembelly Bakery…full review coming soon!
