Charlie's Place

Amanda writes, "This map was drawn by a bartender at the hotel to accompany her oral directions to find the breakfast place where her sister-in-law worked. She drew the map and explained it late at night and we followed it with success the next morning. The gist was to turn left from the hotel onto the coast road, bear left at the Y intersection, turn left at a stop sign, and Charlie's Place was on the left, across from the Stop and Shop. If you get to the White Hen, you've gone too far."

Rue Tourlaque

Amanda drew this map for her family while they were visiting her in Paris. It was used to help them navigate on their first full day in the city when Amanda was attending classes. She included important landmarks such as bus stops and Metro stations, places to buy food and drink, laundromats and the closest playground. She even left her ATM card sitting on top of the map (presumably near the crossed out PIN) and indicated the nearest bank machine.
