oh la la. quebec city is EVEN more frenchie than montreal. it was very charming.
we decided to go in search of this fabulous food that we had heard about. poutine. it is described as "one of the unmissable delicacies of quebec." almost like canadian bar food. french fries with some kind of sauce and cheese on top. we got a hot tip from a local about a GREAT place past the touristy areas. so that was where we went.
yes, they had poutine. yes, we ordered it for EVERYONE. and no, none of the kids would eat it. it was french fries in a slightly bbq-ish gravy and cheese curds on top. i know that it doesn't sound or look appetizing. but it wasn't bad. but it wasn't really worthy of ALL the ravings about it. or the LONG walk to find it. at least we passed some interesting sights along the way.
and here is where adam and karen told me to pose with shakespeare. i was wondering what shakespeare was doing in quebec city. maybe they have a shakespeare festival?
but it turns out it wasn't shakespeare. it was some french guy (samuel de champlain) who looked a lot like my friend willy s. face it everyone looked at lot like shakespeare back in the day...
thought this city did have a lot of love for lea. or lee...
the items in this store were a bit too pg13 to be featured on my blog. of course. it was a store named after me. what would you expect?
and some other interesting stores... i noticed that one of the mannequins in this window seemed a bit different from the other mannequins... my friend, karen, was able to get a close up photo. thank you karen.
