The ship arrived in Lyon after lunch; we boarded a bus and toured around with a stop at one of the last family-owned silk scarf manufacturers. That was really impressive, and I don't even go for silk scarves! They use ~20-40 'screens' per design, they mix the paint with arabic gum so it's thick enough to stick to the silk but still thin enough to spread.

Did a bit the same as yesterday and showed Megan around Lyon, then took some jam sandwiches and crisps to the park again and sat under the trees with our picnic which was nice, ...
