Heygo has developed such a wonderful community whether it be voyagers meeting voyagers, voyagers meeting guides or like today guide meeting guide. A beautiful morning in Quebec with Patrick and Sam

I have taken several tours with Sam and there is always something different to discover about Quebec.

Moshe Safdie designed many international museums. The National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa is a glass and granite building that we had seen on a previous visit with Patrick

Moshe also designed the Jewel Singapore Airport.

The Funicular built by William Griffith. The first funicular went into operation on November 17th, 1879. The cabins scaled up and down by means of a counterweight water process and steam power.

In 1907 it was converted to electrical power.

In 1978, major renovations were undertaken and glass cabins offered a panoramic view of the St-Lawrence river.

The Breakneck Stairs built in 1635, the city's oldest stairway & the steepest.

The beautiful mural pays homage to the history of Quebec City, celebrating the various cultural communities that were and are part of life in the capital, namely,
French and British settlers, and Irish immigrants. by depicting a number of its key figures, sadly we did not see any mention of First Nation people.

Rue du Petit-Champlain must be one of the most beautiful streets and looked so festive,how lucky were we this morning to have the street to ourselves.

It will be wonderful to see on another of Sam’s tour at night.

Rejoined Sam for another evening stroll around Quebec
