Hmmmm...still trying to figure out where the street is...looks like Vieux Lyon, could be Presqu'ile...
I'm not sure :-)

Anyhow...I lived in Lyon for 2 years (until 2007) while I was teaching at the uni.
I still have a couple of friends in Lyon and I intend to come to Lyon this summer...it's so nice to see pics of Lyon on your blog - it's like seeing an old friend.
What I absolutely LOVED about Lyon - apart from its Renaissance architecture and the traboules - were the markets with their fresh products...
And 'tarte au citron'...there is a patisserie on Avenue Jean Jaurès...divine...and that chocolaterie nearby...

Have you ever tried 'Picard'? I never thought very highly of that type of (frozen) food...until I discovered 'Picard'...I miss the food and the Alps and the (better) weather :)

Have fun in Lyon...btw, I can really recommend the "Petit Paumé". In case you haven't gotten hold of one (until now), they're handed out for free in October (don't remember when) on Place Belcourt.
