23 Rue Etienne Richerand (Lyon, France)

The bed here is very comfortable and I’ve enjoyed sleeping longer than planned. I’ve delayed visiting Chambery and Albertville in hopes the weather will yield to sunshine, but I don’t see it in the forecast. (More time to sleep.)

Today I found a Monoprix store in the Part Dieu shopping complex that had more variety than the nearby Lidl store. I looked for the big Carrefour store within the shopping mall but no luck. I’ve shopped in Monoprix stores before and know that I’d find good quality at a good price. (“Part Dieu” is the name of this site, dating from the middle ages, and means “Property of God”.)

I did my first load of dishes in the dishwasher, which was an experience. All of the instructions on the dishwasher were in French, though I did find the setting for “Eco” and pressed a few buttons until I heard the washer start. I hope I remember what I did next time I wash dishes.

Tomorrow I’ll visit the new developments in the Confluence area of the city. Where the Rhône and Saône meet and the largest urban renewal development is underway. There are nearby older buildings too that I can visit.
