Finally the rain has stopped!
We left a very waterlogged site and headed towards Lyon and "Camping des Barolles", thankfully the rain stopped on the way here and so far has not returned in any force!
The campsite is situated about 7km from the city centre, its not a place we would recommend for a long period as its got more of a carpark feel to it rather than ...
In the hope of getting out of the bad weather of Les Deux Alpes, we headed for our next stop near Lac De Paladru, unfortunately we didn't, if anything the weather was worse with almost constant rain for the 2days we stayed, we were still recovering from our bugs so we again spent most of our time in the van..
We took a couple of walks out in between the showers so again not much to report here....

The key technique for lamb was to clean a rack of lamb (frenched), then breaking down the rack into just the fillet and then the medallions. Of course, in Australia it is pretty easy to buy these cuts of meat but it was good to learn. There were several preparations that we made:

Taking the 836am train from Lyon to Marseille tomorrow. I really want to stay in Lyon a few more days though, it's a pretty place and we didn't have enough time to cover everything. I'll definitely come back again next time!
