Europe 2013-Citizens of the Republic of Ushington visit England, France and Spain travel blog

Hipster bikes-for my kids

We had a very early morning (0545h) in order to get to the airport to get our flight to Lyon. We bid goodbye to Paula and Graham, who have been our wonderful travelling companions for the last month. They are off to explore Portugal and we look forward to getting to Lyon and meeting Michael.

Our apartment here on Rue Merciere is in a delightful 18th century building. Our hosts, Michele and Jean are equally delightful and showed us all around the apartment and gave us many suggestions for enjoying the city.

After lunch and a leisurely browse to the tourist centre at Place Bellecour, we settled in at the bar downstairs to await Michael’s arrival. He arrived at about 1630 and had a much needed coffee.

We had a quiet evening-a trip to the Monoprix for a few groceries, supper at Don Taco-a wonderful Mexican restaurant down the street, and an early bedtime as we were all very tired.
