Goin' to Paris, seekin' advice

Maurice Naughton | Dec 13, 2002 10:54 PM

Hi, everybody--

I plan to be in Paris in April and May, my seventh bienniel two-month sojourn. It's great to be retired and happy to travel solo, but it's not so great to be always living on the financial edge. So I again solicit recommendations of places to eat on the cheap, but also on the good-to-great. Yeah, I have a voluminous list of discoverys and recommendations, but I'm always on the lookout for new-and-different.

The apartments I've let thus far are becoming always more expensive, and so I'm also in the market for cheap digs. Most of the bigtime apartment sites for Paris on the web tout their luxury and and are aimed at Donald Trumps nieces and nephews. I'm looking for a bolt-hole I'll only use to write and sleep.

By the way, last September was wonderful and I collected a lot of excellent examples of the cooking of the Indian sub-continent and Sri Lanka, mainly north of the Gares du Nord and de l'Est. On the other hand, some health problems made October not quite so great. I'll pull together a report on restaurants and drop-in clinics after the holidays. Some health problems made October not quite so great.

Hoping to hear from friends old and new.

Maurice
