By 2 pm, we had paid our fee, dumped our tanks, and filled up with fresh water. A friendly Québécois (local) in an RV came over and guided us through the process, even telling us what number bus to take to town, and where to get on. We love it when a plan actually works!

... a bagel with jam and a hot chocolate- chilled out in the cafe for an hour, before coming back to the hostel, checking out and then making our way to the train station for our journey to Montreal!
I'm writing this from the train (they have wi-fi! Awesome!), so for now, that's all from Quebec...
Stay tuned for a Montreal update soon.
