Quebec, Canada

On my way back from Hawai'i, stopped for nine days in Quebec to visit my son Alex and his family, including four grandchildren, Jérémie (23), Benjamin (12), Alie (10), Nalah (4) and a new great-grandson, Kovu. We first spent three days in Montreal visiting the Holocaust Museum and the Science Park, introducing Benjamin and Alie to cart racing, and playing minigolf, while staying with friends. We then went to Lévis across the river from Quebec City, for some time at home with the family, when I had a chance to see my great-grandson Kovu for the first time. It was wonderful to have so much time with my Canadian grandchildren. We also joined the Baha'i community of Quebec for their celebration of a Baha'i Holy Day.
