Thanks to Jerry Hulse's travel column my mother, my daughter and I had a wonderful stay in Paris. We were the thrilled occupants of a two-bedroom apartment with a view of the Seine. This apartment with fireplace, washing machine (what a delight for our wardrobe), snacks, beer and wine was supplied by our host, Ray Lampard, for 600 francs (about $89) a night. We were given helpful hints on where to dine, finding the Metro, shopping, etc. We have traveled in Europe extensively, and this stay in Paris was one of our favorites.
We would recommend a stay arranged by Ray for anyone wanting to experience the real Paris. Phone 1-48-87-13-37 or write to him at 10 Rue Nicolas Flamel, 75004 Paris, France. Brochures available.
And thank you to Jerry for his great column. Really enjoy it.
