Things I love About LyonSo I cannot resist really! I love Lyon! I like it when its colourful and sunny. I like it when its chilly and greyish. I like it black and white. I like when Lyon is crowded and full of people; but I also appreciate when its quiet and the streets are empty. Anyway that sounds like I am working for some Lyon Tourism Board whose aim is to promote its city. No way…I like & love & J’adore Lyon and I am sure you will as well.
So I have been playing with my photos of Lyon and got a set of black & white ones which I wanted to share with you. Hope you like them: http://shopaholicfromhome.com/things-love-lyon/
But this got me thinking, I have been in Lyon over 3 months (all together) and so far there are already so many things I love about the city!
The view and landscape…the city on the hill!
The idea of 2 rivers: Saône and Rhône mergering!
The monuments & museums & galleries to visit
Old & historical feel of the city
Amazing city centre I cannot resist for walking & talking photos
Vieux Lyon & Fourviere & Bellecour & Parc de la Tête d’Or
AMAZING food! Typical Lyonnaise cuisine
The official Food Capital – Huge appreciation for food.
Paul Boucus – the pop of French couisne and his restaurants;-)
Markets! Food, art…mostly food and cheese!
Bread!…plus cheese plus wine…scary!
Fete de Lumieres (wow!) Been & seen and waiting for next year!
Bouchons – so many of them and so any good ones!
Pralines – my sweet, little & pink friends and famous Praline Tart – can you resist?
Top class boulangerie near by. Jocteur – another WoW for Lyon!
J'adore Lyon & France and I am happy about it!
