AlizeeLyon #3

Still too lazy / shy to go out.
On the weekends, I go to the movies and get back home with Vietnamese food.
This week was the famous “Fête des lumières” in Lyon which I did not attend because I had no one to go with.
Yes, I’ve been used to doing things alone but I’m getting tired of it! 4 months ago

AlizeeLyon #1

I am starting to know the city better ; or at least, the subway!
Place Bellecour is beautiful but I still need to see the cathedral.
I haven’t seen districts like le Vieux Lyon et Croix Rousse, though. 6 months ago

Searching for a new way...Exploring

I’ve done a ton of exploring over the past few years. Always more to see, but I’m marking this one as accomplished! 2 years ago


anachronicDid a bit of spontaneous exploring yesterday.

I say “exploring”. I actually mean that I got hopelessly lost in town, had forgotten to bring along my phone, and didn’t want to stop someone to ask for directions. Yay me!

But it happened to be an interesting partially gentrified area of town; it’s actually one of the new ‘hip’ areas, but I’d never really been around there much because I’m such a hipster that areas frequented by other hipsters are just not hip enough for me. Haha. Not really. Except maybe. I’m so pretentious sometimes. :/

Anyway. Here’s something I noticed: There was very little gradation between the gentrified and older areas but it seems like the two communities are pretty much entirely disparate and don’t mix at all. Which is interesting, because I assume that one of the main reasons that gentrification has occurred there is because it is an area rich in historic value. Does that imply that the “gentry” – as it were – appreciate the area for its heritage and architecture, but do not necessarily wish to mix with the people who were responsible for imbuing the place with its value?

Well. I guess I’m not saying that they deliberately choose not to integrate with the existing population of the area. What I mean is that it probably takes a bit more effort to get to know people so different than you, and I really do wish people would make more of an effort. And when I say “people”, I really mean “me”. Somehow I just get intimidated by the perceived differences. And really, you can’t truly get to know a city without getting to know its people – not just the sections of society that one is most comfortable with, but as many of its communities as possible. The process of getting out of my bubble involves knowing more about different people too. 2 years ago
