August 12th-15th, 2010 pt.3

After our ride on the ferry, we continued our tour into the busier parts of the city 

This mural is called Fresque du Petit-Champlain and it depicts milestones in the history of Cap-Blanc, Quebec City’s working class waterfront neighborhood from the beginnings of New France until the present day.

A view below from the Old Quebec Funicular Railway which opened back in 1879

Statue of Samuel de Champlain in front of Chateau Frontenac.  Founder of Quebec City, he is regarded as the “Father of New France”.

Art gallery district

This is the place where you get “real” poutine

The best in the world

We stopped here to pick up a box of steaks to bbq back at the house

I didn’t know you can buy raw steaks at a restaurant

Barbequed to perfection

Freshly sliced tomatoes from the garden

Bon appetite!

From June to September, Cirque du Soleil puts on a show for free in the Saint-Roch neighborhood

It’s neat how they perform underneath the freeway underpass

Can’t recommend you try this at home.  The show was absolutely amazing! We might not have seen a Cirque du Soleil show in Vegas, but we’re glad we were able to see this one and it was FREE!

Authentic poutine.

Death defying acrobats.

A lot in one day.
