Curious Bike Man

Today we did some more walking in one of the many interesting neighborhoods of Paris. As we were exiting the rue des Rosiers after partaking in one of the districts famous falafels, we ran smack dap into the “curious bike man” of Le Marais. He was an odd but very cool dude with the most amazing bicycle you’ve ever seen. This thing looked like a Leonardo da Vinci contraption and he had the wears to go with it as you can see. He was happy to let me photograph him for a small donation. Le Marais covers parts of the 3rd and 4th arrondissements in Paris on the right bank of La Seine. From the 13th to the 17th century this area was the aristocratic district and was the French nobility’s favorite place of residence. After the nobility started to move to the Faubourg Saint-Germain, the district became a popular and active commercial area, hosting one of Paris’ main Jewish communities and is still a major centre of the Paris Jewish community today. The Marais has also become a fashionable district, home to many trendy restaurants, fashion houses, and art galleries.
