For $5.50 I get a return ticket and down I go

There is a free weeks subscription to my blog for the first person to guess how many steps there were to the top of the Clock Tower!!!

This is the Basilica

a beautiful building that I would have liked to have seen inside but it is the first church on my travels that they wanted an entrance fee to get in…that goes against my principles so I did not go in.

I got back to Ramona around 4pm after a wonderful tour of the old city…..I was very impressed with the people I spoke to… all French Canadians who were friendly and helpful…I always started my question with a smile and Bonjour and sorry I do not speak French!!

The one thing I have to mention as it was so rampant was the incredible number of women who smoke…never seen so many puffing away quite amazing.

I am going to go back to the parking lot I was last night and post this then I am going to try and get out of the city and head towards Quebec I hope to take a smaller highway which runs by the river….
