Quebec was the first, non-American city, and coincidentally, we stopped there the same week they were celebrating their 400th anniversary. They had lots of street performers, a music festival and all types of other fun stuff. Also in Canada, they have an Indian tribe called the Inuit and all throughout Quebec they have stores that sell things the made by the Inuits, like carvings, hats, trinkets and mini totem poles. I really liked the stone carvings and I bought a traditional medicine bag with special items in it, like a small carved turquoise turtle that is supposed to bring me luck.
About the street performers I mentioned earlier, they were the most amazing people there (in my opinion). There were magicians, musicians, jugglers, stilt walkers and moving statues (now all we need is a bearded lady!).
Here's a picture of me with one of the moving statues:
Also while we were in Quebec, we went to a chocolate museum (no, it was not a museum made out of chocolate). The museum had all this stuff about the history of chocolate and displays of these amazing chocolate sculptures, like a piano covered in candy with chocolate keys, a barn and even a big ship! After looking at the exhibits, we had to have some chocolate. I got chocolates shaped like cocoa beans, which is the main ingredient in chocolate.
Yesterday we spent 14 hours (!!!) in the car driving from Quebec to Lake Michigan. To pass the time, I wrote this blog, played my Nintendo DS, watched movies on our iTouch and read.
'Till my next blog ...
