I have spent the last two days in Lyon, France.  The first thing i have to say is if you come here...get ready to EAT!   It is a really beautiful city with lots of beautiful sites but the main attraction is most definitely the food!  I ate at a few great restaurants and had breakfast by shopping for fresh fruit at the market.  One of the coolest things I saw was an old Roman amphitheater that has been turned into modern stage amphitheater today where they hold lots of concerts!  Its great to see these old theaters still in use! Unfortunately I have been getting very dehydrated for the last few days and my stomach has been reacting badly to that, so I wasn't able to eat as much as I would have liked. To that end I had to spend a lot of time in bed recuperating and drinking water.  I did enjoy some wonderful street music as we happend to get here on June 21st which is a huge Street Music festival, but unfortunately due to dehydration and heat I didn't get to do as much as I wished.  I am off to Nice now to do some beach relaxation and hopefully eat some more great food!
