PARIS 2e

"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"


Photo Walk through the Temple

The Temple area of Paris is a wild mix of weirdness and as diverse in shopping as it can get. An eclectic mix of chinese retail stores for handbags, cheap jewelry and knick-knacks, trendy eateries and cafes, 40 year old convenience stores and fashionable boutiques in between tiny art galleries and lesser known museums. It's almost hard to believe that in medieval times this area was the fortified headquarters of the Knights Templar Order at the swampy outskirts of Paris.

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
