Subject: Paris - Cafes and neighborhoods - seeking recommendations
Greetings to all Ziners,

Summer is still months away but already I am getting excited about the trip to Paris. I have booked a one wee tour of Paris with a local travel maven - Rick Steves. I plan to use the tour to learn about the city and then spend about four more days wandering about Paris on my own.

I am looking for ideas on what neighborhoods of Paris to stay in for those four days. Also, recommendation for Cafes (I hear they have a few in Paris) that can be my home cafe in Paris. Some place that is not touristy, but will be welcoming to an American who speaks very little French.

Thanks. Paul Near Seattle
