• Bonjour!
    I have never been to Lyon before but i'm loving there on Saturday (9th) to start a new job. As i don't know the city or anyone there I would love to meet with some current residents or people that are also new to the city for coffee, drinks or a walk (or run). If you have some spare time over the weekend or next week please get in touch!
    I look forward to hearing from you

    Bonjour Anya!
    I'm also new in the city, just arrived 2 days before you (on 7th Feb.), and I have no plans for today.
    Do you want to meet me and visit Lyon together? :)

    Anya, you picked a great city. For an enjoyable run, head down the east bank of the Rhone between the park and Confluence. Let me know if you fancy a running partner sometime.

    Hello Anya, I will be arriving in Lyon Sunday (17th) in the afternoon in a job related trip for 12 days. I am looking forward to exploring the city, from museums and coffee shops to nightlife and other attractions, so I would be more than glad to meet people and make friends with the same interests. Or different :). Check my couchsurfing profile and leave me a message if you would like to meet. Maybe we can succeed in gathering a small bunch of interesting people to explore the city with. my profile: Anki Miu

    Hi Anya and Hi all,

    Hey Anya! I see you're a PhD in cancer research - I will be moving to Lyon in May for several months to do some research at IARC as part of my Master's in cancer genetics! Maybe you can show me around when I arrive :)
    Private_message

    Great idea from Anthony, but how much people can we count on?!
    Over 6/7 we'll need to "book" a place even though it's a pub or a random bar.. I know it's holidays, so people are out of town but still ... I picture easily a 10+people group going from door to door (in the snow) asking for seats =/

    Shall we set up an CSevent to make things easily as this post is 3 weeks old?!

    I know a few nice places in between Jean Macé and Guillotière, cheaper and less "m'as tu vu" than presqu'ile or vieux Lyon (I meant "come as you are, nobody gives a damn thing about what you look like" ^^)
    Private_message
    Agree with you Herve, Looking forward for the place and time! i would like to join as well.
    Private_message
    Herve - great idea. I don't want to step on the official monday meet ups' shoes but i can't make this monday so a tuesday meet up would be great. Guillotiere area sounds good. Good point about knowing numbers - would you mind setting up the CSevent as i don't know the bars? Looking forward to meeting you!

    Deal =) I'm on it tomorrow after coming back from work =)
    Private_message
    Hervé OTENIN, do announce the time and place so all of us can plan our way there. Thanks!
    Private_message
    Hi, i can take a drink after my work, about 6pm. tell me when you want...

    Marina - GonzoBAR (it's near Guillotiere - check Herve's link)
    Papy - Tu es tres gentil! Premiere pratique française au pub GonzoBar demain? ;o)
    Timothy - you got the time and place?
