Fourvière is a district of Lyon, France, a hill immediately west of the old part of the town, rising from the river Saône. It is the site of the original Roman settlement of Lugdunum in 43 BC. The district contains many religious buildings including convents, monasteries and chapels.

Hi Amanda! The words “animals that you encounter” made me remember about the beautiful puppy Labrador I randomly met at the end of a morning walk. Since that day I go visit them to end my daily routine with pet and cuddles. They are so loving and plenty of kisses and tail wiggle wiggle! I love them soooooo much!!! <3
