Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small

de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make

Pourquoi n'y a t-il pas plus de restaurants de qualité (comme le Picotin) qui accepte le paiement en Bitcoins? Je trouve que c'est un extraordinaire moyen de paiement, pratique, efficace et moderne.
