Postcard from Paris – Canal Saint Martin

ldp_225_canal_saint_martinThe Canal Saint Martin is not an area I know well and we really enjoyed discovering it. We walked along it from Hôpital Saint Louis down to the market at Bastille then rode Velib’ (city) bikes back (with our baguette and oysters) to our starting point.
Je ne connais pas bien le quartier du Canal Saint Martin et nous avons beaucoup aimé le découvrir. Nous l’avons longé à pied de l’hôpital Saint Louis jusqu’au marché de la Bastille puis nous avons pris des Vélib pour retourner (avec nos huîtres et baguette) au point de départ.

We have almost always stayed somewhere near the Canal Saint Martin when we visit Paris. Initially we opted for the Parc de la Villette area, then latterly the Bastille area. The market in Boulevard Richard Lenoir is excellent. There are lots of interesting things along the canal.

I thought of you when we were there. We were in rue des Vinaigriers (a home exchange which is also a rental apartment) and the area was a great discovery.
