Lyon on pool
The longest journey begins with a single step, not with a turn of the ignition key (Edward Abbey)
Our first trip out of Geneva is to Lyon, France although we were still searching for a car. Since still “patah kaki,” we pooled with a fellow MITIan, kak Normah and convoyed with Hairil and Izan to Lyon. Lyon, third largest city in France, was located almost one-hour drive south of Geneva and in the east central France.

One thing about Lyon, we could not find a souvenir shop. We circled the town for quite sometimes but still out of luck. It seems that it's a common mishap since other people also could not manage to locate a souvenir shop as well!
From the square, you can see the UNESCO heritage site, the Basillique Notre Dame de Fourviere, grazing on the Fourviere Hill, which used to be a Roman settlement in ancient Lyon. We managed to drive up the hill to see the area nearer.
