Trip to India (without leaving Paris)
Recently I took a trip to India, but I never left Paris. An easy metro trip to Gare du Nord, exit on Rue du Fabourg Saint-Denis and head towards La Chapelle and behold, India is before your eyes. Stepping inside the stores you’re instantly transported to India’s sights and smells. Off the tourist track? Yes. Worth a visit? Most definitely. Just be sure to visit with an empty stomach!
A rainbow of color brightens up the gray facades of Paris.
Accessorize your life.
Pick up your spices, and maybe a samosa while you’re at it.Need a little more color, song and dance in your life? There’s an endless supply of any Bollywood film to meets your desire.
And of course no trip to India would be complete without a lassi!

Looks like a wonderful day out– I love the idea of having a vacation in your own city. Paris must be fantastic for that. -X

Fun! Love the pictures!
Toronto was a bit like that too – you could visit many different countries without leaving the city. Paris is far better though!
