Quebec City By Night

Off we went on a spontaneous trip to Quebec City. I had been there once before but it for the winter festival and of course freezing cold. This time I would spend the weekend and get to see more of this beautiful city. It really is like a little Paris. I felt so at home here and felt like I was in a European time warp.

After getting off the bus we headed to Hosaka Ya Ramen which was recommended by a friend. This cute Japanese rec served up some delicious ramen as well as some tapas. We ordered some Sake, Tako Yuzu (which was octopus), Gyoza (Pork Dumplings), Shoyu Ramen (Tokyo style) and Miso Ramen (Sapporo style).

After dinner we headed back to walk around old port and lower town. We took a stroll down Terrace Dufferin and I got some shots of Chateau Fairmont. A trip down the Funicular led us to Basse-Ville  (Lower Town) where even smaller streets and alley ways awaited us, filled with boutique hotels, touristy shops, art galleries, restaurants and bars. After exploring Place Royale and its cobblestone streets, the edge of the St. Lawrence River is steps away and you can see sailboats, ships and the enormous cruise ships.
