acc521 In Lyon: 27 March 2009

I thought that Lyon would be an interesting city to visit as it's a large town in France that doesn't get a lot of tourists from Australia. I didn't really know what to expect and found the city to be quite interesting. There were bits that reminded me of back home - those from Perth, think of the walk down Beaufort Street to Member's Equity Stadium and all of the low rise office and businesses around that area. Other parts reminded me a lot of London and some of Paris. I found it to be a bit of a small version of what Paris could have been like were it not planned.

I was also very impressed at the use of installation art and sculptures around the city and metro stations, as well as the use of lighting and colour at night. Finally, I loved the way the modern extension to the Opera house has been done. Very classy.
