Things I love About Lyon

J’adore Lyon! Yes and I will tell you why…

So 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 (oh well…with a bit of my personal colour touch ;-)…I also cannot resist the colours (this is a fact!).

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.

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!

  2. The idea of 2 rivers: Saône and Rhône mergering!
  3. The monuments & museums & galleries to visit
