The first trip this June was to Québec City for the American Orthopaedic Association. I arrived late Wednesday night and went to meetings Thursday and Friday. In the evenings, I took time to stroll through the old city, which has a very nice feel to it. I joined a local church on Saturday morning and took part in their picnic and afternoon activities. The people made me feel very welcome. After that, I took the ferry across the St. Lawrence River and did some sightseeing there.
