Belleville was a quirky area of town that I enjoyed touring. It was a residential area that had a lot of graffiti and reminded me more of Berlin than Paris. It is a very diverse area of town that houses people with an array of religions and ethnicities. This was the area of town that was targeted in the 2015 Paris terrorist attacks which is significant because the target was an area where normal Parisians live. Walking by the restaurant where the attacks occurred was crazy because it looked so normal. If we hadn't had our tour guide, Kevi, to tell us where it had happened it would have been very hard to tell. Life has gone on as usual in this neighborhood that has been a victim of terrorism.
Little Africa was an area of town right below Montmarte. We toured this area and then ate some amazing cultural food. I enjoyed seeing all the colorful markets and interesting cultural aspects of the neighborhood.
