Ggnga, if there's no appropriate place to post your café story here, we would love to see it in the "other place".

tod, glad you enjoyed the 17th - eager to read your trip report!
d_claude_bear, we will definitely check out "The Secret Gardens of Paris" happy to have a recommendation.
kerouac, La Campagne a Paris is a real find, and your photos are amazing! It reminds us a little of Mouzaia, but much more isolated and difficult to access. We will definitley make the effort when we are there in October.
Those who are interested in this thread may already know of one of our favorite travel guides. It's "City Walks: Paris," a little box with 50 walks, each on a small card with info on which metro to take, a map, and points of interest on the walk. It's so handy because you can just take the card and don't have to carry a guide book. I think we have done all 50 of the walks and enjoyed each one. Chronicle Books publishes these for several cities, www.chroniclebooks.com.

roamer--We also used the City Walks cards. It is so easy to pick an area and bring several cards for that section of Paris in a shirt pocket or purse. We found the travel directions and map on each card easy to follow.

I bought the Unexplored Paris book the last time I went, and I loved it. It's clearly not unexplored, but we found masses we'd have missed without it

I lied. It was Paris- History and Mystery. And it was really good.

Thanks, Shelia. Paris: History and Mystery sounds even better than Unexplored Paris - and it's paperback - great!

There is a series by Thirza Vallois, a long time Paris resident, which I find exceptional: history mixed with walks "Around and About Paris" divided in arrondissments.I bought my copies at Shakespeare and Company while in Paris but you can order directly from the author too.
