Things I Learned From: Down and Out in London and Paris

Things I’ve learned from my second reading of Down and Out in Paris and London:

Things I Learned From: Down and Out in London and Paris


1. George Orwell’s London diet of “tea and two slices” every couple of hours sounds really nice though would actually not be nice at all if it was the only food you have, which it was in the book

2. I very much appreciate having a place to shower

3. Once you’re broke, you don’t have to constantly worry about becoming broke. (Though you then have much bigger things to worry about).

4. Always take handbills from people handing them out on the streets

From here!
