Recently I was in Quebec City, and spent a lovely week taking in some of the gorgeous sites: Chateau Frontenac which sits atop a promontory overlooking the mighty St. Lawrence, the parliament buildings of the provincial capital where we happened upon a free modern dance called Jeme Souviens, the gallery Art Inuit which houses the most important selection of Inuit sculptures in Canada, and the fantastic performance of the Cirque du Soleil, called “Le Chemias Invisibles.” It was outdoors at night, underneath a freeway overpass, and highly exhilarating. And get this: it was free! Ah, Canada, to have such inspiration everywhere without the pocketbook involved.
Sort of like the internet in that way…
