In October 2015, I stayed just around the corner from La Belle Équipe, and I went there regularly on my Paris trip. One of the waitresses made an impression on me. Not all travel stories are happy ones. A 13 November 2015 remembrance. Content Warning: Violence.
La Promenade Plantée (known more formally as the Coulée Verte René-Dumont), a gorgeous, yet under-the-radar, park tops my list of recommendations for unique spots in Paris. This 4.5 km walk along a reclaimed 19th century viaduct inspired New York's Highline. If you've seen Before Sunset, this will look familiar to you.
