Today I was able to sleep in alittle and thank God! When I woke up I went down stair to grab something to eat and I decide to go walk around Lyon for a little bit. I decided to go to some beauty supply store because I needed to get some cream for my hair. When I walked in the man working at the store could not understand what I was looking for.

I had a goats cheese salad, boys had pasta and icecream ...
