Now We’ve Been in Sister Cities

xian and quebec city sistersDuring our walking tour of Quebec City I was surprised to see this banner hanging on city hall.  Our guide told us that the city of Xian in China has been a sister city to Quebec City since 2001.  Some of Xian’s famous terra cotta warrior soldiers have been displayed at the Museum of Civilization in Quebec City and the University of Laval in Quebec City is helping the Department of Health in Xian to set up an awareness program for its citizens on the ill effects of smoking.
