Hi everyone -

Come join me on a little walk around the Marais and learn a little bit more about all those old buildings you pass by in Paris. I'll tell you some fun facts, crazy stories and take you to some more off-the-beaten path historical sites in a great neighborhood. We'll grab a drink afterwards. Fun times - unless it rains - in which case, I'll post and reschedule!

    The most informative and enjoyable walk I have experienced thus far. It was made all the Bette because of an excellent guide who obviously enjoyed what she does

    Elisa did a great job -- I loved the tour and learned so much! It's great to hear the stories behind the beautiful details we see all over Paris, and to get some hints on what to look for.

    This was the best expat event I have ever been too (although my first meetup). It was great because the group of people were all very interesting and academic, and there were none of the awkward introductions you normally have at "get-togethers." Elisa was very considerate and interesting and kept a good pace and length of tour. Then the drinks afterward were a great way to get to know people.

    Thanks so much Elisa for organizing!

    Just FYI, the Place des Vosges is misspelled above (sorry, it was already a listed meetup point, so I just clicked it). The map is still right but in case you don't know where it is and need to google it...see you all soon

    Hey everyone- if you cant make the event, just a reminder to change your RSVP. if you're on the waiting list and want to come- send me a message off list. I'm happy so many people are interested and want to include as many as possible but logistically I can't take an unlimited number of people. Looking forward to meeting many of you on Sunday!

    I would love to go there but how long will it last? I don't want to be exhausted before the long night ahead of us for the SuperBowl :p

      It will probably be about an hour and a half - we'll end up at centre pompidou

    We would probably be more welcomed than Mr. Khan!!

    Place de Vosges is where dominique Strauss Khan used to live, his wife has an apartment there. Shall we drop by? (:

    There's no charge - I'm an art historian and love this stuff, so just extending some goodwill to the meetup. This filled up a lot faster than I expected, so I'll offer another one and PLEASE, if you can't make it, change your RSVP!

    January 24, 2013

    • Sandra Edmonds W.

      I will be there, or definitely let you know if something unforeseen comes up. I look forward to it and I am staying at an apartment near the Bastille-right around the corner. Thanks,

  • Sandra Edmonds W.

    I have invited a friend, she asked what the charge is?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
