Yeah, those stairs are tough... To go from Lower Town to Upper Town is approximately 1200 steps (according to the pedometer...not 1200 stair steps, only a few hundred of them, but so much steep uphill walking).
Anyway, on to the Ghost Walk:
They were scary, hilarious, and quite informative. Do not believe it when your child says they weren't frightened. When a "ghost" suddenly appeared, students scattered for their lives! And THAT was hilarious.
Our tour started with the ghost of the executioner of Quebec during the French colonial era. He took the group on a tour throughout Upper and Lower Towns, with his "victims" - people he had executed popping out of no where looking for revenge.
They all had gruesome tales about their crimes.
The students were totally engaged. Yes, there was laughter, but it was a lot of nervous laughter in attempts to lighten the scary atmosphere. The ongoing lightning and thunder in the background only enhanced the experience, and fortunately for us, the storm passed us by.
I think we're leaving around 9am tomorrow to make for English Canada. See you all later today.
