I’ve spent three nights in Lyon in the sumptuous room pictured above and am now off to the train station to take the TGV to Dijon.
There was a bit of drama after my arrival in France – Turkish Airlines managed to lose my suitcase, which contained the adapters necessary for charging my iPhone and Nikon D7000 battery, which was worrying in the extreme. Not to mention possessing only the clothes I was standing in!
Luckily the suitcase showed up after a day and a half, and Lyon has proved to be a wonderful place (though hot – 38C most days).
I’ve taken about 300 photos so far (after culling) – yes, I take a lot of pictures – and I think so far there are four or five classics (he said modestly).
Hard to tell, though, just by looking at the tiny LCD on the camera. Sometimes things which I think are great I take them turn out to be mediocre when finally seen on the big screen.
