It is not quite as spread out as Paris so it is almost walkable. There is a nice tramline that goes right past our hotel so it is easy to get back when we get tired. We have just stumbled across some amazing chuches and murals painted on the walls.
There is a huge park , Parc Tête D'Or, that has a lake, a zoo, a botanical garden and tons of other park like stuff. We had a blast touring the park, but we put some miles on our shoes that's for sure. I lost my hat, I think I left it in a church, so if you find a hat in a church it is probably mine.
City hall Lyon.
That pretty girl sitting on the bottom step looks just like Yoly, wait a second, it is Yoly! Cool mural!
The new building on the old dock lands.
When frogs attack!
At least a thousand motorcycles in the big plaza in the center of town.
Old school square dancing during the Fête Renaissance in old Lyon
Part of the renaissance weekend.
Just before they all fell down.
Still works to keep bad spirits out of the house while the tube keeps out the bad odors.
Giant beer hall, Brasserie Georges, near our hotel. Oldest in Lyon has been in operation since 1936. The sevice was awsome, the food was O.K. The beer was great. There was at least 300 people eating and drinking. We ate way too much, but we had to find out what an Omelet Norviege was. It's a bake alaska for 8 people in our opinion.
