A while ago, I had this game on the blog called “Where in Paris?“
The idea was simple: I post a more or less unusual picture of Paris and you had to find where it was located. The second part of the game being that you go to the spot when you visit Paris and in the process you discover the city beyond the Eiffel Tower and the Champs-Élysées.
I started this because one of my pet peeves about travel blogs is the infamous “Paris off the beaten path” post that doesn’t go off the beaten path at all (sorry, but St Germain-des-Prés and the Marais are not off the beaten path) and I wanted to show real parts of the Paris where no tourist dare to venture (because let’s admit it, 99% of travel blogs really are tourist blogs).
In any case, I’m reviving it today and possibly again in the future with a very difficult quiz today.
Can anyone tell me where this very unusual, cool and mysterious house is located in Paris?
And while I know where it is, I have no idea what it is. Is it just a residential house or is it something else?
Finally extra-credit: as my Russian is a little rusty (understatement of the month here) can you tell me what’s written above the bell? (if it is indeed the bell)
