      Truly a winter wonderland

      Nothing here was overstated. No touristy degradations designed to make money. The design was not infected modern rooms with all the amenities the discerning guest expects. This, in every sense of the words, was an Ice Hotel. The entire building-every wall, every entrance, hallway, room, the chapel, the entire bar, the seats, were out of ice and snow. The rooms themselves had a thin but very comfortable mattress on top of a solid bed of ice with lighting built into the base that you can switch on and off. An information session teaches you how to sleep in the rooms-which include the use of a negative temperature sleeping bag, where to put belongings to prevent freezing, etc. This session is mandatory, even for locals because-as the guide Sophie put it-when sleeping in a hotel of solid ice, you have to forget everything you know about staying in a hotel. The only belongings you really want to bring in the room with you are your boots, snow gear, and whatever you want to sleep in (they recommend synthetics, we used under armor-style thermals) any electronics have to be kept in the bag with you, and the rest, except boots, goes into a waterproof bag. The bathrooms nearest the hotel are essentially heated port-o-johns, so use the ones in the celsius building instead. How was the sleep? Amazing. Seriously. It's expensive yes, but people who didn't think it was worth the money, probably didn't spend the money. It is SO worth it. (note: the address they have listed here is incorrect. It is at the old zoo this year, in Quebec City. Also city bus 801 goes nearly right there and is only 3.00 a ticket, saves a lot vs. the shuttle.)

      ... Quebec City. Quebec City's historic Old Town is the only walled city in North America. After a short walk through the narrow streets, we took the funicular to the Upper Town. The combination of architecture, trees, flowers, and even a black squirrel made our trip a visual delight and of course there was the stop at Starbucks. Back on the ship, Lee headed for a workout and I began work on the blog. Tonight we have a dinner reservation at the Polo ...

      ... Indian in the mountain (rocks naturally shaped to look like one). Unfortunately the man in the mountain at Franconia Notch has eroded away over the years but you can still see where it was. The area is also full of quaint little stores and there seems to be a white church on every corner.

      Before we left New Hampshire, we stopped for lunch at America's oldest general store in Bath. Unfortunately one of our group was taken ill (nice chap from Pontypool) ...

      Today I drive for the first time with the train in Canada and it is fantastic. I also have internet and a super comfortable seat and a very nice companion. In Quebec the first thing I need to do is carry my luggage up a little mountain to the youth hostel.

      The room is okay and the old town of Quebec city I like immediately. Quite late another girl checks in and wakes me up ...

      ... somehow I watch time and again as a !@#$%!@ Ford F-150 makes a B-line for innocent tourists before parking in the loading zone in front of the house I am renting, while I pay 4 billion dollars a day to park in underground parking deck. One car, annoying but fine. Seriously though-rows of cars two deep? and by the way: putting your hazards on means you have a hazard, not "i am going to park illegally ...

      Entry # 5: How many children could I have? Married

      ... And if someone is engaged, it is often during a civil wedding and less in a religious way. On this, I agree with her. About the families, she told me that in BC, they never saw a family with more than three kids. Where she comes from, the families count between one and three children, so she was really surprised when she heard that some families in Quebec could have more than, sometimes, ten children. ...
