Last week, the city of Lyon gave a reception at the town hall, the Hôtel de Ville, for foreign scientists who are working in Lyon. I attended with some friends from work. Here is an old photo I took a few months back of the Hôtel de Ville from the outside-- it is the building on the right with all the construction.
I didn't have my camera with me, but my coworker Amy took pictures and just gave them to me.
The Hôtel de Ville was very fancy inside. On the mantel here, note Lyon's symbol, which is, of course.... the lion! Here is my friend Farhad.
Amy took a video of the singers that serenaded us...
