Let me tell you a little something about my future hometown...


Lyon, France.

I betcha didn't know that Lyon was founded in 43 BC, did you? Now, let's see, that would make Lyon....yep, do the math....2,052 years ago. Can you imagine all that has happened in the last 2,000 years?

It is also the 2nd largest city in France (aside from Paris). The city lies between two rivers: le Rhône and le Saône.
Lyon is also the gastronomic capital of France.
Gastronomy = study of food.
Study of food = GOOD food.
Good food in France = Expensive.
Expesnive = Broke Elysabeth.

You get the picture.

Anyway, the New York Times' Frugal Traveler just did a piece on Lyon, "In Lyon, a Day Devoted to the Stomach."

Needless to say, I'm excited.

I'm trying to do everything before I leave but I feel like I'm doing nothing at the same time. Make sense?

At least, my purchased air fare serves as a friendly reminder that this is really happening.
