Yay! Did you know that there is an organization called 'the Greeters' and they have volunteers who take people around in their home city for free? We were sure glad to learn about this, and got to spend a really interesting morning with our volunteer guide Norbert, a retired school teacher. The idea with Greeters is that they take you around the area where they live (i.e. their own neighbourhood) as they know that best. Norbert lives in the 14th arrondissement and took us for a three hour walk from Porte de Vanvin to Montparnasse. Even though I lived in Paris for a year I saw so many things I never knew about - very interesting! Merci Greeters, merci Norbert!
