Quartier Petit Champlain, Quebec City, Qc

After walking around Old Quebec City, I took the funiculaire down to Quartier Petit Champlain.  $2 each way saves a lot of walking!

It's a cute area with old buildings, narrow streets and lots of shops and restaurants.  It is the oldest commercial district in North America.

There are two cruise ships in town ... one started in New York and is here for two days.

Lévis is across the St. Lawrence River ... you can either drive across a bridge or take a ferry.

This the Mural of Quebecers, which depicts former residents.

This is the Petit-Champlain fresco mural which tells the origins of the district.

This guy was playing water glasses ... amazing!

This is the guy I could hear while I was eating my lunch.

After the cruise, I headed back to the Funiculaire and up up up.
