Happy New Year

A very happy New Year to all of you!

I know, I know, I’m a few days late, but I’ve hardly been online in the past two weeks!

My girlfriend and I went to Lyon for a few days, just before Christmas. She has worked there for almost a year, about 8 years ago, so it’s like a second home town to her.

It’s a beautiful town, with its Cathedral in Vieux Lyon, the Basilica and Roman amphitheatre in Fourvière, and The Confluence of the two rivers Rhone and Saône.
Update: I almost forgot the magnificent wall paintings, all over town.
We also visited the nearby medieval city of Perouges, a very small, but very nice and very old town, certainly worth a visit.
If I have the time, perhaps I’ll scan some of the photographs for my gallery.

Anyway, we came home on Christmas Eve. We didn’t do anything special the rest of the holiday. We celebrated Christmas at home, with our parents, and New Year’s Eve with friends and – of course – visited family on New Year’s Day.

Oh, we saw The Discovery of Heaven on television. A great movie! Very intruiging. I had seen it in the cinema already, two years ago, and after that got and read the book, which is also very good!

Well, it’s back to work now! For a few days, that is… 🙂 Next Friday, we are flying to Bristol, to visit my brother and sister-in-law. “Hey”, the observant reader will say, “didn’t they live in London?”
Yes, you’re right, they did. But not anymore. They moved. That’s why we’re going to visit them, to see their new house!
And maybe they have a cinema there too… so we can go and see The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King!
