July 7. Drove from Quebec City to Rimouski today, I think about a 5 hour drive. Van is running excellent and AC works as well - LOL.
Hit a huge traffic jam between Riviere-Du-Loop and Rimouski. It seems the french like to stop traffic in a construction
area in each direction for about an hour, then stop traffic for an hour in the other direction. No idea why they do this but I think I'll take the way they do it in Ontario any day.
Here is a pic of the waterfront in Rimouski. You can see a bit of fog on the water from the cold air coming in off the St Lawrence hitting the hot water in the bay. Pretty cool to see considering all the hot weather.
No one speaks english up here - NO ONE! I fell like I'm in Europe or something. When I ask someone if the speak english, the standard answer is "a little bit" even if that's all they can speak. Guess I should have brushed up on my french.
I'm currently sitting in the van stealing an internet connection from some coffee shop. Wish it was always this easy.
