Quebec

In the phonetic alphabet, Quebec represents the letter Q. Quebec is also a province in Canada, or the capital of the province:


Quebec City is located on the north bank of the Saint Lawrence River near its meeting with the St. Charles River. The region is low-lying and flat. The river valley has rich, arable soil, which makes this region the most fertile in the province. The Laurentian Mountains lie to the north of the city.

Upper Town lies on the top of Cap Diamant  - or Cape Diamond - promontory. A high stone wall surrounds this portion of the city. The Plains of Abraham are located near the edge of the promontory. Lower Town is located at shore level, below Cap-Diamant.

I actually researched flights, just out of curiosity, but I can fly to Sanibel or San Francisco cheaper than I can get to Quebec :(

maybe when I'm rich and famous.

  4. I would love to visit Quebec but actually San Francisco is pretty darn nice also, particularly if it is cheaper to get there. :)
