The 2-hour train ride from Paris to Lyon was absolutely stunning. Right now in Lyon is the Nuits Sonores music festival where acts like Liars, Almighty Defenders, Busy P, and Uffie are performing.
After dropping off John and Brigid, I met up with King Khan and Cole from Almighty Defenders for a very appropriate wine-tasting. I had a feeling this would be a good time.
From the car ride to the wine-tasting, Cole and King Khan had me in a constant laughing fit. King Khan, the ever-generous dude that he is, insisted I accept his strawberry shower -cap beret and wear it during the tasting. It goes well with the outfit, no?
I was so impressed with Cole's curiosity about the history and emotion of each wine we tasted. Hearing him say: "I can really taste the 10 year old air in this" was the best highlight. He actually ended up buying a 1967 vintage.
After a wine-tasting in Lyon, what else do you do but go out for a swanky dinner, right? The lovely ladies from the tourism office, Sophie and Marine, took us for a swish meal at Silk.
Here are are some shots from Thee Oh Sees show later that night at Marche Gare:
Coming up: look out for posts on where to eat in Lyon, cute places to shop, and of course, more gallivanting around the city with badass bands.
Bonne nuit xx
