18-08-18 Day 4 Lyon

Saturday 18th August 2018

En route to Lyon Gare on the Rhone-Alpes fast train! We play dinosaur wars and eat McDonalds wedges all the way in. Short and sweet ride.

And to a new part of central Lyon we head thanks to a recommendation from Chris Rega: stay at the ‘Mama Shelter’ Hotel in Jean-Mace, 7th Arrondissiment. Kingsley’s in heaven without even looking at our hotel room for there is a children’s aire de jeux across the road. Yes! A playground; παιδική χαρά! Our hotel reception literally overlooks climbing equipment so its impossible to avoid it this arvo.

After our genuine French Carrefour shopping experience, then dumping our bags in room 421 we eat till we can eat no more and head out for a play.
