Photographer's Note

When we went to France, Honfleur was an obligatory stop, because part of the History of Quebec begins there.
In 2008, Quebec City will celebrate 400 years of its foundation. Samuel de Champlain, a French explorer, leaves Honfleur and arrives in “Kébec” (Algonquin word meaning “where the River narrows”) in May 3, 1608. This day marked the beginning of a permanent French presence in North America, after several unsuccessful attempts. In Honfleur we can see, amongst several historic remarks, a plaque (Andre Duret's picture) with an inscription saying that from this port Samuel de Champlain embarked towards North America and founded Quebec City.
