exploring by train


I wanted to take advantage of the good weather to do some exploring. Suppose to be raining around here any day now.

I woke up this a.m. at 7:30 a.m. and went down to breakfast. Afterward, I took a short cab ride to the Via train station and took the 8:30 a.m. train to Quebec. Qui, I went to Quebec today.


The train is very organized. Almost like an airline and much more comfortable. No wonder some people rather take the train than fly around here. For the curious, they offer a first class panorama lounge, and then for the mere mortals (moi), we get to sit in economie.

Tre bon nontheless. I enjoyed the 3 hour ride. We passed by many wheat fields, happy cows (yes, they were in the open and walking around), and lots of little streams and waterways. Also, I saw a lot of backyards and houses. I wonder if those people installed double pane windows because the train is fairly loud and liberal with the horn.

Getting back on topic, Quebec.

After getting off train, I took short cab ride to Quebec's Old Town.

More on this later. Very tired since I walked almost all day... But I am doing well. Talk to you all soon. Miss you guys!
