Discover Paris: le Marais

Le Marais is the Jewish district of Paris. Its name means "marsh" or "swamp", which I imagine it was a bunch of years ago before, like, a city was built on it. I like le Marais because it's abundant in three things: sweet old-school European architecture, attractive Jewish men, and delicious falafel. Not in that order, though. Falafel trumps all:True story: I got the falafel à emporter (takeout) so I could wander around as I ate it. I was chowing down when all of a sudden one falafel FELL OUT ONTO THE DIRTY PARISIAN STREET and I actually screamed. Good thing there were three more hidden under all the vegetables. Let's get a closeup. Click to enlarge (you owe it to yourself):
Even though Jewish men are my next favorite, I didn't get any pictures of them. So I guess... here are some buildings. Just as good, right? Right?!
Une jolie petite rue.

I got the falafel at L'As du Fallafel on Rue Rosiers (Métro St. Paul). I've made it my goal to try every falafel in le Marais by the end of the semester, so I'll keep updating about that. I just hope the others can compare to this one.

Thank you for visiting my blog! Yours is beautiful. And I loooove falafel! How I would love to visit Paris and try some in le Marais. :) For now I'll settle for eating it in Boston and Providence!

Come on now, I want to see the attractive jewish men!

Your fallafel looks so tasty, and I think I would have the same reaction to my yummy food falling to the ground.
