Nach vier schönen Wochen gilt es jetzt Abschied zu nehmen. Paris zeigt sich – nach einer regenreichen Nacht – noch einmal von der schönen, strahlenden Seite. Es braucht sicher seine Zeit, bis alle Erinnerungen sortiert und verarbeitet sind. Nach dem Stadtleben freue ich mich auch wieder auf Ruhe und Natur – es ist auch schön nach Hause zu fahren. Auch wennn ich  ebenfalls in einer Stadt lebe, ist es im Verleich zu Paris doch eher beschaulich.

After 4 wonderful weeks it is time to say good bye. After a rainy night Paris does its best to show its brilliant side. I´ll  take my time to arrange all these memories. After the citylife I look forward to silence and nature. Even if I live in a city too, it seems to be a little village in comparison.

Im 13. Arrondissement rund um die Avenue d`Ivry liegt das Chinatown von Paris. Zu erreichen ist es mit einer der wenigen Straßenbahnlinien in Paris oder natürlich mit Metro und Bus.  Unbedingt anzusehen sind die Supermärkte der Frères Tang.

 

In the 13th Arrondissement round Avenue d´Ivry there is the Chinatown of Paris. You can reach it with the tramway and sure with metro or bus. You have to visit the supermarkets of Brothers Tang.

In Paris gibt es sehr viele Obdachlose, nicht in allen Vierteln natürlich. Aber gerade im unseremArrondissement findet man sie in jeder Straße. Meistens Männer, aber auch einige Frauen und … das hat mich am meisten schockiert auch Frauen mit kleinen Kindern. Manche haben sich eine Ecke mit ihren Sachen eingerichtet ( die Stadt verteilt Zelte) manche liegen auch nur auf dem Boden. Gestern früh haben wir auf einer Verkehrsinsel eine verlassene Matratze und die Reste eine Mahlzeit gesehen.  Ich merke, dass ich mit der Zeit gar nicht mehr so genau hinschaue. Es ist schrecklich, dass man sich an das Elend zu gewöhnen scheint.

In Paris there is a huge number of  homeless people, certainly not evenly distributed in all quarters,but in our arrondissement you can find them in every street. Mostly male,but a few female and, what schocked me most, women with small kids. Some have arranged a kind of „living place“ at a corner (the city council offers tents) , some just lie down on the bare ground. Yesterdy morning we saw a matrass and the leftovers of a meal on a pedestrian island in the middle of a crowded crossing. Isn´t it terrible how you get used to that  after a while ?

Paris is the land of shoes. There is a shoe store at every second corner. I am obsessed with shoes and usually I have to buy shoes wherever I go. In Paris there is sooooo much choice though, that I just can’t decide which ones to buy that I would really wear at home. So I will probably end up not buying anything (which is totally fine looking at the amount of shoes waiting for me in my shoe cabinet).

What fascinates me the most here is all the girls wearing high heels. I usully have a hard time wearing them myself, so I am even more impressed by the women who wear them in a busy city like Paris.

Here some shoe highlights. Obviously whenever the really colourful and crazy ones came walking by I never had my camera at hand.

Our apartment is in the 11th Arrondisement (Bastille) on Rue Keller. It is a very hip and popular area, and you can find lots of young people.  Besides all the Manga stores in our street there are a lot of little jewellery and fashion labels that are worth looking into. Some of them I want to introduce in this post.

The one closest to our apartment is a crazy little jewellery store with lots of colourful pieces. Last saturday they had a little get together to introduce their new collection. I like some of their bracelets a lot. Although neon colours are usually not so much my choice, I find their way of integrating it into their selection very much. I might go back and get a little something.

Another wonderful jewellery store for the more daily life usage. Really cute little stuff some more playful and others very streigth and clean. I very much like the earings and bracelet made out of lace and little pearls. It’s really cute!

The earrings would be my choice. I might go back....

This shop promotes a nice brand that has very charming romantic yet sporty design. A lot of their T-Shirts and Jumpers have little prints on them, but not in a big loud way, more with little surprise moments: little stars on a pocket or golden dots as a choice of pattern. Unfortunatly my budget on this trip is limited, else I probably would have bought something.
Unfortunaly the shop was not full at all on a Saturday afternoon. Everything seemed very clean an ordered and sometimes I was afraid to go through the clothes and mess up the perfectly lined up hangers. I personally prefer shops that have less of a showroom atmosphere. But I liked the clothes.

Wenn ich gewusst hätte, dass es sowas gibt, hätte ich es mir schon längst gewünscht. ;-)

If I would have known that this exists I would have wished for it long time ago ;-)
