Yesterday was my last day of work here in Québec. While I worked, Alison enjoyed one last day of exploration at the Farmer's Market and the Old City.
After work, we walked to Avenue Cartier and had yet another superb meal, dining curbside at Le Rideau Rouge. The fare was simple (beer, burgers, fries, cole slaw) but delicious.
After dinner, we returned to Scène Bell for our ninth evening in a row. On the schedule were Bryan Ferry and Duran Duran. With all due respect to Sir Ferry, his performance was lackluster at best, and as he closes in on 71, he might want to pursue new interests. As for Duran Duran, they provided a touch more luster, but mostly through volume: the lead singer sang loudly, the keyboardist pounded away loudly, the electric guitar and bass strummed loudly, and the drummer banged loudly on everything within reach. At least the melodies were discernible and not unpleasant. It was sit-through-able.
Some people have complained that our pictures make Québec look too perfect, like a Québecois Disneyland. They asked for a few pictures of squalor, just to prove that it isn't. So, we purposely sought out some squalor and photographed it for you. Brace yourself...
People seem to like these, so we snapped some extras yesterday.
