Quebec 400: Paul McCartney

What a weekend! We spent Saturday and Sunday afternoon sightseeing. Old Québec is so beautiful...We ate at this same café on the right 24 years ago.There were several "live" statues giving performances; this fellow played the Pan Pipes.
An aerial view of the citadel:
Sunday night we headed off to the concert to catch the opening acts: The Stills and Pascale Picard. Our hotel room was a 15 minute walk to the concert site.
It's one thing to see crowds like this on TV and quite another to be part of the experience. It was a veritable sea of people. Québec City, which has a population of 700,000, hosted over 250,000 people on the historic Plains of Abraham for the concert. That's pretty amazing!

Words are inadequate for this once-in-a-lifetime experience, other than to say that Paul was incredible.

There's a very nice account of the concert at this blog.
