UN GRAND TROU!
A BIG HOLE!



L'état actuel de la Terrasse. Des fouilles archéologiques y ont été entreprises pour étudier le site de l'ancien Château St-Louis. Le trou sera comblé d'ici la fin de l'été nous dit-on, à temps pour les Fêtes du 4ooème anniversaire de la ville... en 2008.


Here is how the Terrasse Dufferin looks actually. Some archeological diggings to explore the old "Château St-Louis". The hole will not be there next year for the 400th anniversary of Quebec City.






Je n'ai pu m'empêcher de photographier ce mec...Hheheheh.

I could NOT not take a pic of this guy! Hhehehe...




On enregistrait un émission de teevee tout près des fouilles.

Some people were recording a teevee show near the diggings.

That is a SWEET hole!

Indeed a big hole. Why is the historian dressed in a period costume? The man in the red shirt has skinny arms! Very interesting to look at people's photographs sometimes.

The man in the 'warning' singlet said you couldn't take his photograph, or he moved very quickly all the time which made it difficult taking his photo? I think he has nice arms :)

Sweet Jeff? Like in "Hole sweet hole"??? :)AH! Mainers!!!;o)

The historian is in the blue shirt, Ces... The journalist is in disguise! He had a French accent, wich is very different from Quebecers' accent! Maybe he was from France...hehhehe...NO Madame! The guy is a red shirt has NICE arms! :)

The man was not aware of me at all, Anon. Very noisy machine! : I agree for the arms! :)))))

Il y en a d'autres, tante Rita! :) J'ai pris de belles images hier soir sur la Terrasse. Je suis allée voir Michel aux Bouquiniste avec Clo et Gene, et j'ai pris de belles photos du Château de nuit! :)

Ooooh errrrr MerlinPrincesse :) You would like all the blokes wearing singlets Down Under. They didn't crawl out of a hole either!

oh... a secret cave... maybe that's where the mole-people live. Now that their home has been disrupted, they will come out at night and suck the eyeballs out of the people in town.
Including the town cats as well.

Mole-people are family to me, Joy Eliz...Mbwhahahahahah!
