Le Parc de la Tête d'Or

We drove partway to our vacation spot on Friday, hoping to avoid some of the terrible traffic jams that go along with Saturday travel in August in France. We stopped overnight in Lyon, and on the recommendation of Benjamin's friend's mom, we visited the Parc de la Tête d'Or ("The Park of the Golden Head" - not sure offhand what this refers to...). It was beautiful, and unfortunately we didn't allow as much time for it as it deserved.

There was even a free zoo inside (and lots of apparently illiterate and uneducated people who kept feeding the animals right in front of the "please don't feed the animals" signs).
