    Dogs in a bag

    by vichatherly Written Apr 20, 2008

    In some of the small bars we spotted this small dog in a Frenchmans "Man Bag". Maybe he told the wife that he was going to take the dog for a walk and decided to head for the bar instead. The dog didn't seemed too worried about it anyway.

    If you want to travel to Lyon...

    If you want to travel to Lyon or actually anywhere in France, try not to go in August. That is when the French predominantly take their vacations. They close stores and restaurants (like the one I mentioned) during their break.
