When we arrived in Lyon we immediately got into a walking tour of Lyon. Throughout Lyon there are many monuments to the Louis. Most notably is the monument King Louis the 14th (aka Sun King). There is a statue with him on his horse in the centre of a squuare. The outside of the square is arranged like a sun. We then got to walk through the shopping district and arrived at one of the rivers. There was an interesting bridge we got to cross called the swing bridge. It really does rock up and down when you walk on it and it feels really unstable.
We then arrived at the restaurant center of Lyon
At this stage I wasn't feeling my best so I headed home that night to rest myself for Paris. Nothing else interesting happened Lyon but we were heading for Paris the next morning.
