A Visit to Quebec City, September, 2013

High on Cap Diamant, Chateau Frontenac looms over the old city.

We arrived in Quebec City at suppertime, a bit late, changed euros for Canadian dollars and grabbed a taxi to take us to Hotel 71, in the lower part of the city. A day later, we learned we were staying on the very site of Benedict Arnold's defeat in the Battle of Quebec in 1775. We could see Chateau Frontenac, looming over Cap Diamant, from our window.
