Another lovely day in Lyon yesterday, Wednesday, finding the new Parc Blandan, reuniting with our old dear friends Iris, Freya and Jacob (who are moving back to London after 5 lovely years in Lyon), feasting on crepes and carpaccio, wine and dusk light, riding carousels, shopping, lemon tarts....

St. Jean all cleaned up - last time we were here it was all brown and dark gray, covered in soot.

Not sure what this manifestation / protest was about but Guthrie really wanted to go see, inspired by Moral Mondays in NC, and I think it was about equal education for ALL, no matter what gender or sexual orientation / identification you are:

My second favorite photograph so far - could be anywhere and nowhere and everywhere:

rhubarb and blueberry tartlets
