What city do you live in? What neighborhood?

I like to sleep in the XIIeme arrondissement, I like to walk in Montmartre, I like to eat in Le Marais, I like to have fun in the XIIeme, I like to stroll around la Cite, I like to be sleepy on the grass of le Jardin des Tuileries, I like to work in Beaubourg, I like to love in the street of Montorgueil, I like to hate in the business district, I like to be hopeful beside the Musee d'Orsay, I like to lough in the chic area, I like to sing around la Bastille, I like to fix every minute in the city of my heart and mind ... I live in Paris.

What are some adjectives that describe your neighborhood?

mixed, artistic, urban, old styled, modern, happy, luminous...

How long have you lived there, and what brought you there?

I live in Paris for two years, but I used to come here often.

What is your favorite thing about this place? Your least favorite?

I love this city in the sun. Unfortunately, that happens hundred days per year. But, even when Paris is under the rain, there is so much light!

Paris is the place I was meant to be since I was a little girl.

What is the most common misconception about where you live?

All Parisians are not unpleasant.

When you are in the middle of the Cours de Vincennes, you can see the Eiffel Tower (although the monument is at the far end of the city)

I secretly love the subway.

    Paris is my favorite place on the entire planet. I have been there many times and can contribute photos to show the city that I love. Can we collaborate on this sort of idea?

    I have been to Paris as a tourist, but your short piece, combined with the choice of photos, gave me a better understanding of how a parisian sees home, thanks. And good luck

    You have my vote, I live there too... :D

    I like the atmosphere that it emerges in some places of the city, like New York, Paris is a paradise for photographers, isn't it?
