Where I Ate in Lyon: Brasserie Le 1900

July 10, 2013
My last meal in Lyon was in this quaint little restaurant along Rue Victor Hugo – Brasserie Le 1900. It wasn’t chosen out of anything extraordinary, I’ve decided to eat there as it was the first decent-looking restaurant that I could find from my hotel and it had a very nice outdoor area with a view of the small park across from it. I sat on one of their outdoor dining tables and asked the waiter

Random photos of Lyon at night.

July 9, 2013
Lyon is pretty during the day and enigmatic at night. I specially love the Fourviere area, of course. The photos of Lyon at night below were all taken with an iphone, explains the grainy result of it. One of my favorite shots of Lyon at night. The trees with the lights gave it a dramatic effect, yes? The Parliament which I discovered by accident when I took the wrong turn to go to Pont Bonaparte. At night, the bouc

Things To Do in Lyon: Visit Croix Rousse

July 7, 2013
I’m pretty sure that there were a lot of other things to see in Croix Rousse than what I’ve seen when I went there. It was the last full day of my vacation and I was just totally beat. All I really wanted at that time was to lay down on a beach somewhere, sip a margarita while I observe the life around me pass by, too bad there was no beach in Lyon. To top it all off, I decided to visit this area when

June 26, 2013

Lyon has a lot of restaurants not to mention the mini stalls that they have all around town to sell you crepes, merengues, ice creams or just about any food that you can eat while walking that you can think of. So yes, I’ve been eating almost the whole time that

Things To Do in Lyon: Visit Parc de la Tete d’Or

Parc de la Tete d'Or
The weather was fantastic when I visited Parc de la Tete d’Or. Unlike the very cold Paris where I came from before I went to Lyon, it was relatively hotter in this part of France in April. I had to buy normal shoes as I only brought one pair of boots with me for this trip, the light packer that I am. I love parks in Europe. I’ve been to quite a few but Parc de la Tete d’Or is probably the best

Things To Do in Lyon: Visit Musee Miniature et Cinema

June 22, 2013
This is probably the best museum I’ve ever visited in Lyon. It was highly entertaining for me and the place really piqued my interest. I even went back to some of the rooms in this museum to admire what’s on display once again. Highly recommendable for those who are movie freaks like I am. What exactly is it? Created by miniaturist artist Dan Ohlmann, the Musée Cinéma et Miniature presents two rare a
