La Belle Province - Quebec

I arrived in Quebec just before 1 am this morning. Wrapping up a solid 24 hrs of travel. Despite delays on three flights, and as a result of the delays being able to catch two of them (which featured two mad dashes through Frankfurt and Toronto airports) all my bags made it. On my flight from Frankfurt to Toronto we were delayed on the runway for two hours leading into the 9hr flight. However, we as passengers were treated to a great show by a Toronto based band called the Lemon Bucket Orchestra, who had just wrapped up their month long Eastern European tour. It was the happiest group of people I have ever been on a plane with during such a delay. Here is a youtube clip I put together of the band on our flight filmed with my phone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stnBHChwdyk&feature=youtu.be Ironically, this very band was on our Air Canada in-seat entertainment, under Canadian Movies with their documentary called "Let's Make Lemonade".
Bedtime finally came at 3 am, but by then it was 10am Finland time...a couple sleeping pills fixed that problem. Warm weather has stripped away the winter time feel and beauty of Quebec City. Nonetheless the race course is ready to go, and the city still has it's old world charm. I have been fortunate to get a room on the 22nd floor of the downtown Hilton. Providing an incredible evening view.
And not a bad spot to do some computer work.
