A very quick hello from Lyon, the gastronomical capital of France. My daughter is returning back to the US tomorrow morning bright and early, so we thought we would take advantage by spending a day in this lovely city. After four weeks in the Auvergne countryside, it feels great being back in a more urban surrounding, though I am not ready to get back to Brooklyn and the heat.
While here, we had lunch at Paul Bocuse's bistro 'Le Nord.' The food was wonderful, of course. I am getting used to three-course lunches with wine. I guess that's a bad thing, right?
I was rather entertained by this woman who was sitting next to us with her little lap dog. (As far as I could tell, she did not share her Bocuse meal with her pooch.)
