Ah, but where in Lyon ?

:-)

General area is fine

I'm in trouble. I remember walking down this street after a long and excessive conference dinner. I guess it is in the old town area near the amphitheatre. But my memories of the occasion are a little bit clouded by red wine - or maybe it was a sudden onset allergy :-)

Good enough, you mentioned "old town", and it was indeed in the district known as Vieux Lyon, or Old Lyon, the original part of the city. Beautiful area, great food - this is where the classic bouchons that Lyon is famous for are located.

Over to you then !


I'm mainly here for the snacks

After guessing 'Quartier Latin" earlier my second guess would have been Lyon as well. I also remember vaguely having a meal there but being driven off to our hotel instead of walking down - with the same sort of vague recollections as Ed. That is what France is doing to you. :) That is probably why guessing French WAINs is so hard even when you have been there.

It's the copious quantities of Beaujolais, probably :-)
