More Lyon

Bless me bloggers, for I have sinned. It’s been one week since my last blog post. Sorry for the hiccup in recounting our vacation but my sister was here visiting and we kept so busy there was no time for blogging.

A few more photos of street scenes to share with you.

The crêpe cart. You could get them “to go” or eat in at the restaurant. We ate at this restaurant one night and I did end up having a delicious fromage/jambon crêpe. Yum.

Bikes for rent. You could rent them in one place and return them in another. But as to who really wants to ride on rough cobblestoned streets ... well ... not me. ouch.

Over on the Presqu’île one building was painted completely in wall murals.

And it’s huge fountain of four charging horses symbolizing the two great rivers running towards the ocean.

They even blow steam from their nostrils!

I was wondering what happened to you…
Photos were great as usual.

Very cool mural building!  Also love the fountains.  Very beautiful!

The murals alone would make it worth visiting Lyon.  What lovely pictures.  I really enjoyed your posts.
