HELP Needed: Cheap-Ass Paris Accommodation

Hey

^bibi^ (Greg) and moi are going to Roland Garros and we need to sleep somewhere, obviously. The thing is, I am a poor student and really don't have the finances available to live the Parisian life the rich way. So, we are looking for cheap-ass accommodation.

We found:

- The Bois du Boulogne Camping. Cheap, but Greg's mother says it's bad. Has anyone here stayed there?
- A budget hotel for €11 per night, but it is a private four-bed room and requires us to pay for all four beds So in reality it's €22 per person per night

We are pretty desperate. If there is someone here that can help, please do so! I would personally even be OK with crashing on the floor in my sleeping bag, so if some Parisian poster wants to host us

Help will be much appreciated!

We could also find to other people who are going at the same time than us to share the room lol

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

I'd host you.

If I lived in Paris, that is.

It would be useful if you specified which period you were going, or are you staying the entire fortnight?

€22 per person per night isn't that expensive.

I'm a student too and I happily paid about that much to stay in a hostel when I went to Wimbledon last year.

I guess it depends how much you are planning to spend on beer and stroopwafels when you get there. Or you could always go a whole month without any stroopwafels in order to save up for the accommodation. I know I'd save about €90 doing that.

If the French Open was in Wales, that is.

Alternatively you can go early and play some music near the Eiffel Tower to raise some extra cash.

Or stay up late on street corners. The French gay scene will go wild for some Coo action.

And with Greg added as a bonus, things should really get crazy.

Last time I went on a gay bar in paris we had just arrived and this guy just spotted me, he wouldn't left and keep on following me, so we decided to change bar (And I still don't know why.. I'm not attractive at all :s )

You should also ask for help in the francophone chat thread

19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.
