Discovering Paris from a Guinean Perspective

Guinean blogger @limsow who recently moved to Paris for an internship, describes [fr] a less-hostile capital than expected on Guinée Plurielle: “I already know how to take the RER (the C line) to go down to Vitry Sur Seine  or to get to Avenue du Président Kennedy, in the 16th arrondissement. I am also familiar with the metro now, after many: “Please, is this the line that goes to X?”. Contrary to what people have told me, my questions are so far always answered, and with a smile.”
