In the Marais with Martine

We took advantage of the Paris Greeter again and just as before, it was well worth it.  If you have some time and really want to get to know an area, I cannot recommend it enough.  The personalities of the greeters are unique, but the common link is that they all share a passion for their area.

Today we met Martine at the St. Paul Cafe and walked through the old Marais.  She grew up in the area and with her Jewish heritage, had many stories to share about the occupation.  More information will come about that in a post purely about the occupation.  On the walk, I felt as though I saw the city as it was in the 16th century.  Check out the gallery below to see some sights we saw and click the images to get more background information.
