Today on the podcast it’s return guest and friend of the show – Amanda from Boneshaker Doughnuts.
She’s talking about the second district, the smallest of all 20 arrondissements, and how it has a distinct community feel. I agree! I spent my first two years in Paris in this little village and I loved it!
In today’s episode, we discuss the delectable rue de Nil, the covered passages, and Amanda’s success with bringing Halloween to Paris. She even plies me with some delicious donuts from her shop – the first of its kind in this city.
Listen here and find the shop at 77 rue d’Aboukir 75002.
At the end of the episode it was Bertrand from My Private Paris giving us some context on the second district of Paris and a few spots to find.
