Looks like a quiet place. Cold waters...Is there people standing on the bridge?

Reg meets Roy

Today I had the pleasure to meet Roy Arenella (PhotoMail) and his wife Martine. Roy contacted me a few weeks ago anouncing his visit in Quebec City where he was planning to spend a couple days. I was thrilled!

We met tonight and went for supper at the ''Gare du Palais''. Like I was telling Roy, if you are a tourist, the best place to visit Quebec City is outside the box, I mean outside the walls of the old city. There is so much to see that is different from the touristic setting.

Great meal, great conversation and exchange. Of course I had to ask Roy about the time he met Ray Johnson twice. A very humble man, he let Martine tell the story.

After the supper, I took Roy and Martine for a walk in the lower town showing a place where group of teenagers, punks, marginals, etc... hang around; the ''Ilot Fleuri''. A place coved with murals on the pillars on the Dufferin highway and hundreds of graffitis in the other concrete walls. I love that place. We finished the walk by going around the old city in the narrow streets on the old Quebec. It was a chilly night, that probably explain why the streets were so deserted. I has never seen that before.

Well, just to say that it was a great evening spent with lovely people. I hope Roy and Martine will come to Quebec City again.
