This weekend, I was able to spend time with my boyfriend (who has been working in Europe for weeks!) and see some great friends that I used to dance with in Lyon. It was a long flight for 3.5 days of fun, but soooo worth it!!
I lived in Lyon while studying at Lyon III, so I’m very familiar with the 2nd largest city in France (Marseille can dispute it all it wants, Lyon is #2… and IMHO much better than Paris).
As one reader suggested, I made sure to revisit the Gallo-Roman theatres (above, at left), and took time to enjoy espressos and excellent scenery at Les Terreaux (above, right).
Carine Perrier and I enjoyed some time together… and Bill and I gorged ourselves at all the best spots, including Nardone, my favorite little ice cream parlor.
