Cheap Accommodation in Paris during RG

Hey

Being a poor student who is too busy during semesters to work and who needs all his money for university anyway, I don't have much money to go to Roland Garros. But... I really want to go and I know I'll need a break right after the spring semester. I already know that I can get to Paris relatively cheaply and of course I know ticket costs (I want to go to RG qualies mostly, maybe one or two days MD).

Who here knows where to find cheap accommodation in Paris? I am talking, preferably, less than €20 per night I need a bed and a shower

I'm going to the French Open too but I haven't thought about finding an accomodation yet.

Martijn, I already told you, You can crash on my brother's couch for a few days, it's a go. If its for 4 or 5 days i guarantee its not a problem. Otherwise i dont know of any place to stay in that price range. If you bring your own towels and buy your own food, you're set.

But your brother does not know you telling me this right? I appreciate it, but we don't really know each other well so it's all a bit odd I will definitely take it into consideration though

And yeah, it would be for five or six days or so, but probably only accommodation for three nights as I'd go by bus and arrive early in the morning for the first day and leave at the evening for the final day. As I said, it'd be for some qualifying days, Charity Day and maybe one or two days of MD action.

Also, I'd still like to go to your barbecue

Sort of. I have asked him in the past to have people crash at his place for RG, but each time, the people didnt come.

Really its not a problem. We are not a gang of thugs looking to prey on people. drop me a pm with your number, so long as you dont get in the way and just basically crash there at nite after tennis im sure he wont mind.

BBQ sounds great. Its really no worries, we're not the homophobe-brothers ... Im sure its not a problem. Ill be going on friday saturday of qualies and then on Sunday too i think. So long as you let him do his work and dont mind a bit of untidyness I think itll work. pm me.

you should visit the francophone chat thread : there are lots of french posters who live in Paris or nearby

but goodluck with everything

Meldonium will “increase endurance properties and aerobic capabilities of athletes” and it “improves functional parameters of heart activity…increases physical work capabilities, increases the rate of organism rehabilitation after maximal and submaximal loads.” And that it is “not included in the doping list; it does not provoke any undesired side effects.”

The camera is not mine and is far from fancy If it were fancy, I'd have taken action shots And the autograph collection has emotional value
