Travelogue: Nous avons visité Helen à Québec

Soon after I returned from the South, we journeyed up to Quebec City to see Helen perform with her group, Village Harmony. She was on a three-week singing tour which took her across Canada from Toronto to Quebec. Here she is on the far right at a concert in Quebec City. Their conductor is seated on the right, clogging. Note--this is actually a video which takes a few minutes to load.

Nels, Lou, and I also had fun exploring the city. Here we met a luthier who made beautiful violins covered in Irish carvings. Lou got to try her hand at fiddling on it. She wanted this violin very badly!

We also hiked the ramparts, met these guards at the Citadelle, and explored other nooks and crannies of this wonderful city. We can't wait to go back.

Here is Helen in her Village Harmony t-shirt at an outdoor concert. It was a very special three weeks. Our girl really grew up!

Nice visit but the first pic seems to be missing for my view. Your comment text colour is very pale too.

What a wonderful, exciting thing! I love the pictures. How was the border crossing? Any problems either way? And I've meant to say have a wonderful time in NS!! What a great thing to do.

The border crossing was easy for the kids, not so easy for the adults. They had 3 conductors turned back at the U.S. border (Bulgarian, English, French Canadian) due to no work permits even though they were just conducting 4 final concerts. It was so sad!!
