Today we visited Lyon France which, like other cities in this area, was a Roman outpost.  There was a beautiful church and a lovely old town.  Nonette did some shopping and we had a great time sightseeing.  This is the place where the Jacquard weave was invented. To do this process they invented punch cards for the shuttle to go through.  This eventually lead to development of the punch cards used on the first computers developed.   Lyon also claims to have had the very first movie process created here.   Lyon is a large city with all the conveniences that come with that but it also has an old town district where you feel like you step back in time.
