Follow this to be directed to an excellent blog on Paris, full of photos and clips celebrating all that is Paris in her glory. From graffiti to free kebabs- here is the site to follow if you are jeune-minded and looking for the alternative, and real, Parisian scene.
A particular favourite is the recent entry, a Youtube music video: a far cry from the Edith Piaf and accordion playing that we all associate with the grands boulevards and Haussmanian architecture that gives the city its unique cultural identity. Made me laugh a bit, as French rap is normally preoccupied with sex and violence (my impression), and to see an afro-gansta spitting out his love for the Eiffel Tower seems like a juxtaposition. Although this says more about my preconceptions than anything else.
