In the weekend, a snowboarding competition was going on in Quebec. That was an international competition called Championnats du Monde Fis de Snowboard and big air semi-final and final were held on the day
On the next day, I left for Old Quebec in the morning. First I walked to the tourist information of Old Quebec. I didn't meant to go there, but the building where I took a shelter from a snow storm was the tourist information. The staff member I talked with was very friendly and gave me a lot of information about sightseeing in Quebec. First I went to Dufferin Terrace and saw the St Florence River with drift ices. I had never seen drift ices in a river like that. Then I took the funicular to Petit Champlain. Petit Champlain is the prettiest part of Old Quebec and it was like streets from a fairy tale. Then I felt like going back to the district in the evening. Actually, the staff member of the TI had suggested an evening cruise in the river, so I was thinking about a revisit to the district in the evening
After that, I went back to the hostel once. I talked with room mates there and decided to take a cruise to Levis with them. We walked to the ferry port through Petit Chaplain and the district was like a fairy-tale village. Chateau Frontenac was also beautifully illuminated. Actually, the district is more unforgettable than the cruise to the south shore. Anyway, we took the cruise, but it was freezing on the deck. So we quickly took a picture there and got into the cabin. It was fun to travel with friends and absolutely memorable. I thank them from my heart. On the next morning, Alex and I left Quebec City for Montreal. Because we left our hostel too early, we went shopping in Metro supermarket, where I bought poutine. It was recommended by the Japanese girl who I had met in the hostel. It was pretty good, but it went cold soon, while I was eating on the way to the train station.
