August 12th-15th, 2010 pt.2

The next morning we rode back to Quebec City to meet up with Denis & Isabelle and had breakfast together

We met the family cat Bill

Charles, a guy we met in Cuba who is also close friends with Denis & Isabelle, invited us all to his chalet the next day near St Tite des Caps.  Charles is a wild man and is always game to party.

Denis & Isabelle graciously took us out on a tour of the historical city.  Our first stop: Quebec General Hospital’s Cemetery

A famous French General who played an important role in the 7 Years War against the British is buried here

I love how they preserved the cobble stoned streets

It’s very easy to get lost in the maze of side streets in Old Quebec 

The Quebec City Mural depicts several notable people in Quebec history such as Jacques Cartier and Samuel de Champlain

Notre Dame de Quebec Cathedral built in 1647

Old Quebec has many old buildings that reflect the architecture of those in Europe at the time

We took a ferry across the St. Lawrence to get a better view of the skyline 

Another shot of Chateau Frontenac

Couldn’t resist taking a picture of this man’s outfit

Quebec’s version of Crocodile Dundee

Quebec City skyline in the background

Since 1608.

City with long history.

Formerly New France.
