Lyon, Summer 2012

Lyon is a city in south-central France that is situation between the Rhone River and the Saone River. Because of this situation, their buildings are very close to one another and they have many passages between the buildings to save space. These passages became important during the World War II as the French Underground came to life in their city.  It has a wonderful history dating back to the Romans. A city that became famous for their textiles and specifically their silk. They have their own unique culinary style.  I’d be happy to return anytime.

I had read what Rick Steves had written about Lyon but I was not prepared for how beautiful the city really is. The weather was not great but cloudy skies are what you want for photography. We all assembled in front of this view and waited for dusk to settle in and the lights to come on. We were not disappointed.

More to come. This week was traveling and a family funeral so I will cut the blog short.
