What can be found in a park...

Let me introduce you this lizard... I had some difficulties to take this picture during a walk in the biggest park of Lyon called "Parc de la Tête d'Or" but at last I succeded...!

One more... Fourvière !

I swear it : this the last time I show you a picture about Fourvière ! But this week I did a lot of tourism with my parents-in-law (you remember, they come from Japan !) and I wanted to show us the interior of Fourvière. It is a very wonderful church "oriental style" built at the end of the 19th century. I found those candles for prayers very beautiful so I decided to shot...
So you can have a complete view about our favorite church !

Arts in Lyon

Today, let me just introduce you our theatre called "Théâtre des Célestins". Under this monument, you will find a parking designed by Daniel Buren (yes, the famous columns of the Palais Royal in Paris)...

Hello, I am back from a terrific journey in Paris. I took some good photos but as my blog is not about Paris, you won't discover them here (maybe on my other blog... Soon !).

Today was a day dedicated to tourism in Lyon with my parents-in-law, who are japanese. they discovered all the good places in the "Vieux Lyon" and, of course, I suggested to have a break drinking something in a bar called "le Savannah", perhaps the best place to drink delicious fruits syrups (Place du gouvernement, 69005)... I let you give your opinion about the photo !

St Exupéry

Perhaps one of the most famous people from Lyon ! This sculpture of Antoine de St Exupéry, writer of the 20th century and who wrote "Le petit prince", can be seen near "Place Bellecour". The writer is next to his favourite character. maybe they are waiting for... a sheep !

Sometimes, you meet some strange guy who takes his own pleasure playing the guitar in the streets... Earning money is, perhaps, the aim of this "musician", but he also thinks that passers-by will be delighted by listening to his music... But it is not always what we feel... !

The hand

Seen on a door : a hand without body... Strange, isn't it ? Useful when you don't have any bell to ring so as to have the door opened...

Ste Blandine

Do you know Ste Blandine ? It was, at the beginning of our time after the death of Jesus, one of the first martyr of the christian religion. She tried to preach Christianism to people and because of this, she died, being given to lions... to be eaten ! And this scene took place in lyon.

Nowadays, you can visit to famous places about her. First, you have the place where she certainly died, near the Croix-Rousse. It is an empty place, like those that we could find in roman amphitheatres. After that, you have this church, dedicated to Ste Blandine, behind the Perrache station. I like the first photo because the sun was exactcly behind the church and it gives a strange effect... Don't you think ?

Our game !

In Lyon, we play "la boule lyonnaise". It is a game that consists in throwing a heavy bowl (more than 1 kilo) so as to reach a smaller one. You need to throw it with strengh and you use those bowls of the photos ! It is a very traditionnal game in Lyon, especially played by grandfathers !

A boat on the Rhône...

Here is a photo a took some months ago. On our river called "the Rhône" there often are many boats that offer to tourists the opportunity to have a cruise crossing the city of Lyon. One can also have a break dining outside, under a beautiful summer monlight, on the terrace of the boat. A good moment to try if you visit our city !
