Riviere-du-Loup, QC to Gaspe, QC
Today, we covered something like 300 miles, traveling from Riviere-du-Loup (a ways North East of Quebec City) to Gaspe all the way at the end of the Gaspe Peninsula.
Apparently, the Gaspe Peninsula is the place where many French Canadians go on their vacations... From what we've seen so far, it does NOT appear to be frequented nearly so much by non-French speakers.
Fortunately, most everyone we've dealt with understood enough English to help us muddle through. It seems to help when I apologize for being a stupid American who does not speak any French.
I suppose that's ok since it's true... almost, I can just about manage "no fromage si vous ples" (no cheese please)
