I haven’t answered your email because I am a terrible correspondant. Because I arranged to have extracurricular activities before I realized that I would actually have homework this year (the 4th years lied!). Because I was a sick, sick little kitten last week and then we had this big Shabbaton thingy with my school and now it’s midterms and then I’m leaving the country. And did I mention that I’m a terrible correspondant? Yeah.
Shane, I really owe you a big one. And Dina, hi, sorry! And so it goes.
In the meantime, anybody know a) about the European rail system in a way that could be useful to me and b) of an inexpensive hostel in Paris that is walking distance to the Louvre?
It’ll be really fun, this trip. I just need to survive the next couple of weeks getting there.
Okay, now. Poskim. What DID the Rif say about marrying multiple wives?
Danya, I stayed in an really cool hostel near Notre Dame that was an old monastary and was very affordable and a lot of fun. Unfortunately I can’t remember the name of the place. A bit of googling did turn up the Hotel Louvre Richelieu which is apparently a 5-minute walk from the Louvre and is 20-30 Euros a night.
Thanks, Avi! Except… where does it say 20-30 euros a night? The prices I see on their site look quite a bit higher….
Danya, this page shows the Hotel Louvre Richelieu prices as starting at 30 euros. Also check out the listing for the Hotel des Ecoles, which is apparently near the Louvre as well.
BTW I highly recommend the hot cocoa at Angelina’s! 2Also if you have a chance the poetry readings at Shakespeare & Company are fun.
Good luck! Oh and I personally wouldn’t recommend multiple wives. Just in case. -Avi
