Today, our second day in Paris, we went to see our artist for a logistical meeting. She suggested a cafe called Chez Ginette, located right in the heart of the Montmartre neighborhood. We took a metro ride, stopping off at a few locations to switch routes, and made it in about 30 minutes from our spot in the Latin Quarter. I realized as we walked to the cafe where we were…I could tell from the steps. Montmartre is a big hill in the north of Paris, famous for it’s many stairs and steep ascents. Back in the 20s artists like Dali and Picasso loved to hang out here, and I can totally see why. It’s beautiful. Here are photos of our adventure, and be on the look out for a post about our artist, Jara Ezo, later!
Something I really like about Paris so far, and this might sound weird, is the graffiti. When I was down in Brazil I loved it too, when it was done in an artful way. There’s a lot of that here and I think it’s really cool. It shows a slightly more modern bohemian side of Paris that you don’t necessarily think of.
Still no sign of the Eiffel Tower, however I think tomorrow that’s our plan since we’re about to get rolling quickly on production. I can’t wait to share more about my experience in Paris! So far it’s a whirlwind and it’s hard to keep track of everything we’ve been doing, but it’s a good kind of crazy. Au Revoir until next time!
