Québec City

I’m finally back from Québec City, which was an awesome trip! I have recently realized how this program has affected my English. First off, when speaking English, I’ll want to add random French words into my sentences because I’m mixing all of the words together. Secondly, I’m forgetting how to spell. For example, yesterday when writing my blog, I spent quite a bit of time thinking about how apartment was spelt, and I couldn’t remember if it was spelt with one p, or two. I guess it can only mean I’m learning French! Today, I woke up at 7:15 after having a very, very short sleep and I got ready for the day. We probably didn’t leave campus til about 9, but we made our way to Québec, and got there around 10:30. When we got to Québec, we went on a walking tour, which just showed us around Old Québec, and after that, we got the chance to explore on our own. We first made our way to Ashton, a restaurant that apparently has the best poutines ever (and they were actually pretty good). After that, we went to Simon’s to shop for clothes and then we went to a coffee shop to regain our energy and have a nice visit. Some more people met up with us, so we shopped some more and then went for supper to one of the best places I’ve eaten in a while, called Le Rétro. It was very well priced, and their plates had so much food (very delicious too!). I ended up getting penne with tomatoes and tomato sauce, as well as the soup of the day, which was carrot soup (so good!), a Limonade Maison, and an apple tart thing. It was basically lots of layers phyllo dough, and then on top, thinly sliced apples with caramel sauce everywhere, and was amazing. After supper, we had to make our way back to where the bus was going to pick us up, which basically took about 45 minutes. On the way, we found some entertainers on the road, and I got so excited when I saw them. I’ve decided that it’s what Katie and I are going to be doing for the rest of our lives. There’s a video of them below. We made it back to the bus just in time (at 9), and got back to the campus at about 10:30. Now, I have lost all of my energy and I’m ready to crawl right into bed and have a nice, long sleep. I hope everyone’s having a good weekend!!! xoxo
