Lyon is just lovely. We didn't get very far today (got distracted by coffee...I'm still recovering from it) but the bit we saw was very pretty...


The Catholic Basilica: Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, built in 1890, but has been consecrated ground for 1000 years.

Me and Meagle being our usual camera-whore selves

Solid gold Mary at the top of the bell tower. This Basilique has a LOT of gold...

We couldn't take pics inside (fair e-fucking-nough too) so we took pics of postcards for you instead.

The walls and ceiling of the church are completely covered with fine mosaic, a lot of it gold, it looks stunning.

(grrr, why can't I figure out how to make them go the right way round )

And then there was the usual silliness...

Any guesses what this is? It was written in several languages, so we looked for ours, then it took us ages to figure out what it was

Eiffel Tower?

Yay, bikes! These are kinda cool, you put money in a slot and then you can use the bike...I don't know what happens after that, coz we didn't try it

Again, guess what we were doing (you can win a prize if you guess correctly)

Hey, what do they mean I should change

The prayer thingy looks like Ave Maria or something in Maori. Possibly Hawaiian.
