Northeast Paris is very multiethnic. Sometimes it's everything except White.

After several years of speaking French, I still don't understand why many restaurants, cafés and bars have names starting with au(x)

Aux Deux Gares
Aux Deux Cochons etc.

In this example, it says Aux Deux Gares and Des Deux Gares. The second one makes sense to me because in Spanish you could say Cafe de las dos estaciones but never Cafe a las dos estaciones. In fact, you would just name it Las Dos Estaciones (Les Deux Gares).

"Aux deux gares" actually means more or less: "en las dos estaciones", there is an idea of location, of place, in the expression.

Nice pics Minato. It's always surprising to see spots such as La Chapelle with a strong working-class and multiethnic population with the same beautiful Hausmannian buildings as those in posher and more bourgeois neighborhoods. That said you can also find old ugly buildings like the one in the photo posted by edubejar.

Great photos once again, Minato_ku. Looks like Paris has a big Indian/Pakistani population....not surprising for such a huge, cosmopolitan city.

Are the French big fans of Indian food? Personally, I love it.
