Cultural Tips: Signs here are...
Cultural Tips: Signs here are usually in French: Pont = Bridge, Rue = street,Arret = stop, etc. Speed limits are in KM/h, NOT MILES! Cops exept in school zones, usually won't stop you unless you ride 20km/h over the limit :) Also on most highways, you'll find that cops are pretty absent. In the city, you'll often see parked cars with nobody in it or the cop is doing god knows what.. Limit's are 100km on Highways, 70 on urban boulevards, 50 on normal roads and 30 in school zones.

This basilica, downtown...
This basilica, downtown Sherbrooke is not only very impresive architecturally, but it's also just beside the old seminary and a few historical spots so It's not out of the way and once you park your car here, you can walk around and see a few nice things.
Sherbrooke: Southern Québec
went to sherbrooke twice in my life thus far.. once for a conference with the rest of the ontario and quebec doctoral universities; another time as an unplanned stop on my way to maine. really cold, but lots of nice hilltop views. this city is really hilly. big university town as there is the university of sherbrooke around.
Chrystalain's new Magog Page
We have friend that lives in Magog, near Sherbrooke. It is not far from Montreal neither from the US borders. It is a very beautiful place; the lake and its beach are very popular. If you have time, you must visit Magog! I borrowed this picture until I can find one of mine...
