French Fridays: A visit to Les Halles Paul Bocuse in Lyon

Les Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse on eatlivetravelwrite.com

This past summer, I was fortunate enough to spend a couple of days in Lyon where, of course, one of the first things I did when I arrived was head to Les Halles de Lyon – Paul Bocuse, a true food-lover’s mecca. I was staying with the wonderful Lucy Vanel of Plum Lyon along with Jennifer so we had our tourism priorities straight – food first!

    Mardi. when I read your blogs I am so amazed at all that you do. We have traveled over so many of the same areas and reading everything that you see and do, I am so disappointed in myself
    for not having researched at the time. However, I guess we we lucky we ended up where we planned to go. I love looking back and wishing I could redo it all. I love reading all of your posts,
    and so happy that we were fortunate to even connected through FFWD. Such a great experience.
