The River is Rising and The Basement of Curiosities

The Rhône is swelling thanks to lots of rain. 

These are pictures taken of an area I really don't visit that much between Bellecour and Perrache, which is on the south side of the city. I know some of you may not have your Lyon maps handy so this area is in the opposite direction from Shake & Bake. This "cave" of curiosities was just that, curious. Once you walk in that blue door you immediately descend a few narrow stone steps and you are in a shop packed with all kinds of things; tableware, purses, pottery, scarves, art, jewelry, glassware, some antiques and some new items. The ceiling is a series of low arches, the walls are stone and there are lamps scattered around giving off a warm, inviting glow.

The "Cave" reminds me of Diagon Alley from Harry Potter.
