Rimouski, contrary to popular belief (such as it is), is actually quite a nice town. Stunning waterfront. Wonderful downtown museum in an old church lovingly renovated. Great collection of restaurants (Thai, Japanese, Vietnamese, Sushi Bar, etc.). There is, of course, for most Islanders (or anyone else), not reason to “pass through” Rimouski, so I expect it gets far less tourist visitation than it rightly deserves.
That I was able, with 5 minutes of driving around, to find an open WiFi access point in Rimouski suggests to me that WiFi is now very close to “available everywhere.” I didn’t have it in me to drive around in the foggy rain of Levis tonight (which is where we are now), so I’m dialed in to my emergency Earthlink account. Boy is the Internet ever a horrible place to be at 24,000 bps.
Our weekend gone mad will see us in Quebec City until Thursday, followed by a mad dash back to the Island to pick up where our life left off.
