The new apartment was most likely built in the 1800’s along this street in Lyon known as “rue des Marronniers” which is associated with a theater and about 12 restaurants. We live smack next door to a bouchon called “La Mère Jean” which honestly, has amazing Lyonnaise typical cuisine.
It took us about 4 hours total with three of us to move all of our stuff out from the old place, into the new place
It was also a nightmare. After elbowing through crowds of CIEF program attendees at Lyon 2, I had to haul box after heavy box of our lives down three stories- then up another 4 stories with no elevator. I proved my ‘non feminitiy’ as I hauled and helped Bri and his dad with the move.
I’m still in recovery of the move and my muscles are still incredibly sore and weak, I almost have no will to step outside our door, but I have to because of the testing for the CIEF program and the need to clean our old apartment.
The new place has wooden floors, a large salon, a large salle a manger (but no table, which has really misbalanced our routine), and a big kitchen. The kitchen has a cuisinière au gaz and a big fridge… which has made me so happy!
