rue Victor Galland

To me, no matter where I live, whether in France or in the US, I find that it replenishes the soul to get out of the neighborhood from time to time. Explore unknown territory. Take a different route, both physically and mentally.

My peregrinations have lately been drawing me to the 14e and 15e arrondissements, on the edges of Paris intramuros.

When I discovered rue Victor Galland, I felt as though the sharp edges of Paris had vanished. Something joyful and willfully carefree about the painted houses struck a chord.

"I'd like to know these people," I thought.

People have complained to me that Paris is nothing but conservative and stuffy - I think they're missing out! This is fabulous.

I really enjoy your blog, it's very well-written. You make me wish I were living in Paris again.

I live in Paris since 1970, but still discovering... I lived in Castagnary 20 years ago (before the little lughthouse was there), now my focus is on 11th, 19th and 20th districts.
Nice blog you drive !
