Me at dinner in Old Quebec

We arrived in Quebec City yesterday, after leaving a rainy Montreal, where we spent our last afternoon staring at Macbooks in the windows of computer shops (and then deciding they cost too much) and visiting the Montreal modern art museum, which was just plain odd, and included a curious exhibition of neon lights.

Last night we had a lovely meal out at a cafe on the main shopping street, which was buzzing until late and very European, despite the skyscrapers in the background and a crocs shop opposite us (which I keep going into... maybe just one more pair...). Today we wandered around the edge of Old Quebec, which is a walled city and visited the spot where the British defeated the French way back when - after this and the war museum, I can see why French-Canadians aren't the biggest fans of the British.

The fact that there were people in the streets of Montreal protesting about not wanting to be a part of the British Empire (which I'm quite sure is no longer true...) and the Quebec car number plates all have 'je me souviens' (I remember) on them, with regards to their tumultuous past with the British, I get the impression that the Quebecois may still have a small chip on their shoulder...

Tomorrow we head back to Toronto for the last time, so it's bye-bye travels and hello work - we're rearing to go now and really looking forward to it, so fingers crossed it's as good as we hope.

Thanks Jess for your interesting comments - you truly are a freakish little child - hope you are all well at home and beyond.

Au revoir!

I can't wait to see your pictures of Niagra Falls - don't see how they will compare with my Lake Garda pics! Enjoy and keep up the good work. Love Dad xx
