Jenny Sheraton’s Travel Diary

Wednesday, 30 Aug 2006

Location: Lyon, France

MapWe are leaving Nice today and heading to Lyon. We left at 8.30am and our first stop after an hour was in Grasse at a Parfumerie. We were shown how they make parfume and of course bought some.

Then about 3 hours to Avignon for lunch and had an amazing kebab with fries in a bun. I saw the Palace of the Popes and the walls built in 1200 and 1300`s. Then another 3 hours to Lyon.

We arrived about 5pm and showered and changed and walked into Old Town for dinner. We came across a church built in 12/13th century and then had to pick our own restaurants for dinner. There were 9 of us and had a lovely 3 course meal for 16 Euro. I had french onion soup; chicken in cream sauce and coffee icecream with coffee syrup. Nicky, Katie and I shared a bottle of local red wine - quite nice.

The others had snails and frogs legs. I couldn`t do it. Then we strolled back to the hotel and was in bed about 12PM. Paris tomorrow.
