Quebec, Canada

We took a quick vacation in Canada in early August 2001, for 9 days. It was a driving holiday and by the end of the week the poor car had added 2000 miles to the clock. We were very lucky with the weather, and had sunshine most of the way, except for a few bouts of rain now and again.

We started the trip in Montreal and stayed with a friend of Vince's, Guylaine, who is originally from Paris and now lives there permenantly. The old town of Montreal is very interesting, with many old buildings, most important are the town hall and the Basilique Notre Dame. We also visited the Olympic tower, the Biodome which is a mini zoo with lots of interesting animals (it was the cyclist's stadium for the 76 Olympics) and the Botanical Garden, which has the largest collection of Bonsais outside Asia (Guess who was a happy boy?).

Quebec City is the only walled city north of Mexico. It is a beautiful old city with many historical buildings. The Chateau Frontenac is a 600 room hotel, and is the most impressive feature of the walled city. The changing of the guards at 10 am every morning in the citadel, which is an active military unit, is not to be missed. The old city lies outside the walls along the St Lawrence river.
