Hep ! Baptiste speaking, living in Paris now after some time spent far north in Norway. Got some room to offer in Paris, and can also tell you a lot about happy smily underground alternative and not too much touristic places, for those of yall who'd like to find some authenticity here. Yipa.
Big fan of North American culture -litterature and music. Old wild stuff, Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams, Jimmie Rodgers, Skip James, all those stuff. See what I mean ? :)
But I also listen to a lot of modern indie music, and hang out in some cheap good bars in Paris, that you should definitely discover.
Feel free to ask me if you need any assistance while you're in Paris. I live right in the center, in the heart of Quartier Latin, 10 minuts walking from Notre Dame, and good bars all around my home !
Paris is wild.
