More about Quebec

June 21, 2017

Québec is the only walled city in North America and a UNESCO world heritage site. 90% of the population speaks French and it does test my high school French.  I practice a bit with duolingo app, and can recognize many words and speak a few.  You need it here. The cafes and winding cobblestone streets can make you think you are in France! We had our croissants and coffee in the morning and lunch at a charming cafe.  Tres bien!

The Chateau Frontenac is the most famous landmark here and it is gorgeous.


I had a manicure here and Marie (who didn’t speak much English) asked where we are going next. I replied Sept-Iles and she started to laugh.  I thought she was laughing because I pronounced it wrong, but then she said, ” it’s no Fort Lauderdale” and we both cracked up.  Apparently there is not much there, so watch for my next post!
