Amqui, Québec – Bonjour Québec

A funny and very practical custom in Canada are so-called yard sales or garage sales. That’s a flea market on your own property. Toys, electrical devices, furniture, or clothes – there’s everything for a good price. A very charming alternative in times of Ebay and other internet auctions.

On a bridge we cross Chaleur Bay and suddenly we are in Québec. The only officially French speaking province in Canada ignores to a great extend the bilingualism jointly decided in parliament. All signs and posts are just in French language. Well, remember your French learned at school and prepare your dictionary.

In the afternoon we reach Amqui. Everything is as described. We find the house and the Unimog; we find the key and even the cat.
