  1. Spent 2 days in Lyon and loved it esp. the old town and the secret passages whose name I forget at the moment. It is a beautiful city and deserves more time. (traboules?)

  2. I flew into Lyon once and took a bus from the airport to the train station…. business trip to Nice and I hate flying domestic from CDG…now I wish I had stopped over. Beautiful pictures, but more importantly, where else did you eat?
