Lyon, France, Europe, Apr-May 2007

World HeritageLyon is the second largest city in France, we decided to come to Lyon to do a 2-week language course on the recommendation of a French teacher whom we met in Hong Kong. We quite like the city, as it is not as busy (and stressful) as Paris, there is an old town which is both interesting and historical e.g Ancient churches, Roman Theatre, French Puppet (Guignol) etc. Lyonnais cuisine has it own unique offering, we had dinner at some well known restaurants like Orsi (Chef Perrie Orsi, nice and high-end restaurant), Brasserie Georges (nice and affordable) and Le Sud ("The South", also nice and affordable one of the restaurants by "The best chef in France" Paul Bocuse). Paul Bocuse's flagship restaurant is also in the outskirt of Lyon, we missed it this time.
