How fantastique to be with Ray and Téa again after 6 1/2 long weeks. I can already tell I am going to love my new home town. I am very grateful to Ray for getting us back to our sweet apartment in the hip Guillotiére section of the city. It feels like we are in the Brooklyn of Lyon, with fancy Place Bellecour just a short walk across the bridge. We spent my first weekend here sampling croissants, cheeses, crepes and even pho since there are a lot of great Asian restaurants nearby. Ray’s colleague Vincent Michelot and his wife Barbara treated us to a special French meal of foie gras, delicious rabbit stew, amazing cheeses and a raspberry cake in their lovely apartment which overlooks the Rhone and the cathedral. Biking around the city, shopping at outdoor markets and stopping for coffee and wine at cool cafes – I like le lifestyle Lyonaise!
