Ville de Québec

I spent the weekend in QC attending seminars and workshops by day and drinking and cavorting by night. I managed to slip away from the bar long enough to take some photos. They're not the best: they're hand-held, it was freezing, and I was fairly wobbly at the time.

From the Upper Town, in and around the National Assembly.. and rue Saint-Jean, where much of the drinking and cavorting took place.

@Habfanman, were you drunk when you took these photos? Your friends sure look a bit tipsy.

Heh heh! Ya I stepped out around 3am to.. ahem.. smoke something and that inspired me to wander off to take photos. I got to Château Frontenac and realised that they'd soon be leaving so I rushed back and we all went for poutine. We got back to the hotel in St Foy in time for a shower and our first seminars at 8am. Did it all over again the following night!

Hmmm, I wonder what was that something that you smoked? Anyways, nice photos of a beautiful city!

It looks very European, like a mix of dutch/belgian, british and nordic architecture depending on the picture, nice!

Half of the old quebec buildings are french-style and the other half british-style. The older buildings (c. 1620 to c. 1760) are all french, built in the same way as those in normandy and paris at that time, Paris and Normandy being the regions which have influenced New-France culture/language/architecture the most.

Awesome. I've been in that Christmas shop you snapped a couple of pictures of. They sell Christmas ornaments year-around.

BTW, the girl in the red jacket just eye-****ed the shit out of me.
