Quebec City, QC

Quebec City was definitely a surprise, and ultimately I regretted only being able to spend 1.5 days there. I sort of expected to be a lot like Montreal but in fact it was very different! It had more classic, historical buildings and architecture (in fact, 2008 was the 400 year anniversary of the city), and was much cleaner. Even people’s accents were slightly different. Here are some photos.
