Cutest street in Paris
Walking around in my neighborhood I found this street. The weather was not so great but I couldn’t leave without taking pictures. It reminds me of Notting Hill in London, the cute colourful houses… Not very parisian you know, it is not the typical building you’ll find in the beaux quartiers. But this is super nice. Different, but maybe even better. It actually looks full of live, you can imagine people living there, families, children playing in the street… In fact, it reminds me - not the houses themselves - of my native town.
I am a babysitter here in Paris, and I can tell you that being a kid in Paris is not the same thing as growing up in a small town, and it’s even different from the countryside. You can’t do as much, it is very dangerous, homes are smaller so kids don’t have a lot of space. When in smaller town you can play in the street, go on your own to school and all. So this street feels like you can be more free than in the rest of Paris.
