Quebec City

Morning really did come too early. A 7:00 train to Quebec City seemed like a great idea a couple of months ago when I booked it but...

I think we forgot it was Halloween until the skinny pirate moved in behind us in the lineup and started to talk away to us. The conductor was a Rastaman and made all the announcements in what he thought a very cool Jamaican might sound like speaking French. What do I know, perhaps he was right on. There are Halloween decorations all over Quebec City.

In our case, the train really was the way to travel from Montreal to Quebec. In Montreal, Central Station was no more than a couple of blocks from our hotel and the Gare de Palais is right in Quebec's Vieux Port, just a few blocks from out hotel.

We walked around the old city for a few hours, had lunch and wandered back to l'Hotel Belley and had a beer and a nap. I love this little hotel. It is right across from the market and a short walk to restaurants in the Lower Town in the old city. It is a climb up the hill however which may be more exercise than you planned for. You could walk along to Le Funicular and save yourself the climb.

This evening we ventured out again, keeping an eye out for ghosts and goblins along the way. There were small crowds of little kide trick or treating and lots of people in costume. We ate at Porto Fino which is a pretty dependable Italian Restaurant in Quebec. Quite boisterous and friendly.
