Preconceived Notions: Lyon, France

Posted by Christopher Wink on Oct 13, 2008 in Preconceived Notions |

Nearly a half million people live in Lyon, in southern France, a large city indeed.

We should be arriving there from Paris soon - a two-hour train on a busy and well-trafficked line - but I am expecting a far more relaxed place.

Being a second or third city of France, I hope to find less American influence. I have often heard the Parisian sneer is criticized in calmer southern France. The people, I have been told, are kinder, gentler, more understanding.

Though we couldn’t find a place to crash on CouchSurfing.com - a post on that to come soon - we did find a couple who generously offered to host us for dinner tonight. I am sure we’ll have plenty to share about that, which already seems fitting in my expectations of the city.

Lyon is a bit west of the foothills of the Alps, so I do expect it to be fairly flat, like a lot of what I found in Paris and remember from our bus trip down from Brussels.

We’ll see.

I was suggested this website by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed
about my problem. You’re amazing! Thanks!
