Vive le Quebec 3

It’s been one hell of a week. Saturday/Sunday/Monday I studied for exams. Tuesday and Wednesday evenings I wrote my exams after working all day, getting very little sleep. Thursday night we had our work Christmas party, and Friday I drove 8 hours after a full day of work with a modest hangover to come to Quebec City with Han, arriving at 2:30AM. For the last 2.5 hours of the drive (From Montreal to Quebec City), we endured such dense fog that I had to navigate solely on instruments.

I had the best sleep of my entire life last night, and I feel like a new person today. We came to Quebec for a week for the purpose of a) relaxing and taking a break b) To do all our Christmas shopping, c) To work out and swim lots and c) Enjoy the sites and history

Our hotel is located in downtown Quebec City and only a 10 minute walk from “Old Quebec”. The city is celebrating its 400th birthday in 2008. I managed to get another great deal through Priceline on the hotel ($50 U.S. dollars a night). The same 3 star hotel is listed at $110CAD/night on Expedia. Believe it or not it’s actually warmer in Quebec City right now than Toronto (5 degrees celsius).

    Congrats on completing a tough week for work and academics. I haven’t been to Quebec City in ages, but I have very fond memories there, and I would like to return with Beatrice sometime soon. Perhaps next year, to help out with the 400th Birthday Celebration.

    The buildings and streets in old Quebec are a site to see, as you know. I can appreciate having been there why the French say “dans la rue” or “in the street,” rather than “on the street.”

    Anyway, enjoy the trip, and I look forward to seeing some pictures on your blog. :)
