My first walk takes place in Paris’ 14th district, around Montsouris. You may have heard of the park, but the surrounding neighbourhood has an incredible history: nearly 2000 years of ruins, visible from its streets, and locals ranging from the first Black star of Montparnasse (before Josephine Baker!) to a leftist lesbian painter who became a heroine of the Resistance during WWII.
You won’t only hear my voice during the walk, but also sounds from the past, from water streams under your feet to mythical parties. If you want to try it first, you can listen to the first three stops of the walk for free by clicking here.
I am working on other walks so that I can visit more of Paris with you. Be my legs, I’ll be your ears!
