Great Trek North

Daniel and I never go further North than Paris II (except to go the airport), but today we decided to be a little adventurous and see what lay beyond. We discovered that there is actually a Turkish district in Paris, which surpised us both (and Daniel's been here 7 years!) - so it was a very adventurous day. People think we're snobs when it comes to the districts, and I guess they're right because we discovered so much today! Although I did hesitate to pull my camera out on certain corners...
