Québec CIty

Sunday was our last day in la belle province. There was a wonderful mural on the library across from our hotel. I'm annoyed that there was a bus obstructing the lower part of it.

After a quick stop at Costco for beer (I know!!! And inexpensive - $27,49 for a 24 of Corona Extra) we spent it walking along the Old City wall, touring la Citadelle and finishing up in the touristy Old City but seeing some of the oldest buildings that we had seen yet.

Interesting wall in the Old City. Lee has a piece of the wall that fell off when he touched it.

eta: Between Lee's much more European french and my conversational but more Québeçois french we did very well. A majority of the people, especially in the businesses, spoke English though less so in Québec City it seemed. It was a wonderful experience that I would readily do again, blisters notwithstanding ;)
