Lyon: Lumiere


Finally it’s Friday! Class pretty much dragged by. But this afternoon we went to the Musee des Lumieres. It was a cinema museum built out of a home that the Lumiere family lived in. The house itself was beautiful enough to marvel at, but we also got to see things such as the first TV, the first movie projector and where the first film ever was filmed.

Can I just say that our tour guide was actually super adorable. He was so unsure if he could do the tour in English. So he was talking to us in French. But then he started talking to us in PERFECT English. I shit you not. Why is everyone but Americans bi- or tri-linguial?

I wonder if the character from Beauty and the Beast was named after them…
