We took the bus into Lyon for a look around the city with no expectations but it was a nice city and easy to get around.
Now that its dry, we hope it will stay that way as staying / sleeping in the van with the rain pouring down is a pretty miserable place to be!!
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..

- Roast Chicken
- Poached Chicken (Blanquette)

- Basquaise - Chicken - Capsicum
- vallee d'auge - apple sliced, onion and mushroom glacÚ,

For the main course we had Emince de volaille aux champignons (Chicken breast and mushrooms), Tablier de sapeur sauce gribiche (Triper with gribiche sauce) and Saucisson chaud sauce beaujolaise (Hot sausage with Beaujolais sauce). And... I finally had rice!! It's been bread bread bread the whole time, finally some rice! For desserts ...
