Been coming across some chatter about a road lined with pastel buildings in paris as I browse through travel websites and even on TimeOut Paris. So I decided to google and check up where this was. Sheryl told me she wanted to go there, as she too saw bloggers who have pretty photos in that area, so we headed for Rue Crémieux on Sheryl's last morning in Paris.
Somehow we were expecting the area to be a road filled with maybe little coffeeshops/cafés or something more interesting than just being a road. Alas, it was just a road with pretty pastel painted buildings. It was in fact a residential area which made taking photos kind of awkward. But, we did it anyway.
*Perks of looking like an asian and being let off for being touristy/doing touristy things that invade other people's privacy.
Of course we were sure to only take pictures with the houses that were completely shut, and not pop our heads into any open windows/disturb any of the residents.
P.S. Sorry for the Lousy iPhone quality, I tried to edit the pictures to not show the inside of people's houses rather, show the reflection of the building opposite. Have fun figuring out the colours of the buildings on the other side of the road!
I think this is a place one would not mind missing. Then again, if you happen to ever be in the 12 arrondissement in Paris, just walk by and snap a few touristy shots, no harm in that!
