Gare de l'Est et le Canal St Martin,
I would like to present you a part of Paris where I live- The Canal Saint-Martin, it's located north east near a park : le park Villemin.
It's a channel going from the north suburb of Paris to the Bastille district : Port of Paris.
You can find lots of bars and restaurants all along. Young and cosmopolitan people live in this area and are called "bobo": 1st BO stands for "bourgeois"- middle class people, and 2nd BO stands for "bohême" (bohemian).
On Sunday no traffic is allowed neither it is in summer , Sundays and Saturdays.Only pedestrians, joggers, families, kids.Sometimes in summer boats sail all along.
On one bank, opposite where I live there is the Hôtel du Nord : North Hotel. It is a very famous hotel with a restaurant.
East of the channel you will find the Gare de l'Est and farther far south the "Place de La République".
