Been a while between posts, got plenty to say but no time to write it (that’s a good thing, right?) - anyway, made it to Paris. here’s the view I woke up to today.
Currently staying in Goutte d’Or, which I’m finding out about via Wikipedia:
"This neighbourhood has been working class at least since the 19th century. Emile Zola set there the plot of his novel L’Assommoir, depicting the life of alcoholic workers.
The district is also known for the crack cocaine trade and its high crime rate.”
