A little known fact

There are 130,000 students in Lyon.
That's more than 4 times as many as there are in Cambridge, even if you include APU "Ruskin"…

How do I know? Because the town has put up posters around the place to welcome them. I think maybe the lyonnais aren't very interested in posters, as my class this morning had no idea there were so many…

Incidentally, the first transport strike of my year abroad is on thursday. Yay.

I presume the bicycles don't go on strike on Thursday?

No…but three weeks after opening my bank account I still don't yet have a cheque book so I don't yet have a 'velo'v' card. It's okay though the metros will be in service sporadically, or I can borrow someone else's bike card!
