beau reportage, mais le titre casse un peu tout je trouve...
laisse aux idiots cette idée provocante que Paris puisse être ennuyante et plutôt que de leur rendre la polémique, propose nous ta vision et ton expérience de Paris. Du Fbg St Denis à St Michel il n'y a que quelques kilomètres et pourtant des univers très particuliers, du quartier turc au pipeshow, en passant par le déversoir de la banlieue, la froide Cité administrative, un boul' mich' vaguement étudiant, et les abords élégants du Luco... il y a matière à parler, à discuter... à montrer des dynamiques urbaines avec notamment des sexshops qui disparaissent, un sentier qui devient de plus en plus chinois, des halles toujours aussi grouillante, un quartier latin de moins en moins latin, entre usine à touristes (rue de la Huchette et cie) et fripier...
voilà... on sait que les touristes ne vont pas là, qu'il n'y aille pas d'ailleurs car le naturel disparaitrait de ces quartiers...

Great tour.
BTW there is no such word like "touristic" in English.
"Tourist" would do

my translator gives 'touristy' as an adjective. I don't know if that word fit to the intended message though...
I think touristy may have a more negative meaning

Awesome tour! Par contre, 132 photos sur une seule page, tu ne trouves pas que c'est un peu exagéré? If someone doesn't have high speed internet, it might take an hour to load...

Wooooooow. Thanx for the pictures. I used to live @ Bonne Nouvelle

I was surprised once I discovered that the area between Bonne Nouvelle, Chateau d'Eau, Poissonnière and Strasbourg St Denis in the 10th is a ZUS (Zone Urbaine Sensible). Ahaha, at least I lived in the poshest ZUS in France!

What I liked about the area is the change; it's a kind of line between the cliché Haussmannian Paris (the 9th), the "evil" (the 10th and the prostitutes and chinese ilegal ateliers at St Denis/Strasbourg Blvd.) and the bo-bos (the 2th at Kiliwatch in Montorgueil).

Anyway, I became pissed off. The area really lacks of green spaces and it's much dirtier than most of the city-center. And Mortorgueil has became so cliché and "hype". Then I moved to the 11th Bastille and I think it has a better quality of life.

If it looks like that, it can't be that boring.
