saturday 25th october 2008             Small trip to Lyon

Clement with my son and my great friend named "France" : beautiful name

Our husbands and children (major) they travel to Strasbourg to go to the concert about group SCORPION.
To not stay still, my small last son Clement, France, my best friend and myself, we went walking in Lyon.
We left at 10;30 am  Lafay and drive from St Genis Argentiere.
Arrival on Lyon Gorge Loup bus station to take the metro to 11 . 15 am
This is very practical: we took the car parking (free if you take the bus).
we took three tickets "day" :  4 € 40 which gives us the right to travel all day on all subway and bus network in Lyon.
Then we took the Metro. For Clement it was the first time ... He were very  joy and pride.

The weather was very klind.
In Fourviere : The Virgin golden usually overlooking the basilica is currently on the esplanade because of the renovation of its basement. It was therefore able to "close approach" ... beautiful
