"Après quoi" instead of "après que"...

Hello. In my book, "Dans la dèche à Paris et à Londres", one thing that was said was "Après quoi je dévalai dans l'escalier". I take it this means "After I hurtled down the stairs", but why "après quoi" instead of "après que"?

'Après quoi' means 'After which (event)'. http://www.wordreference.com/fren/apr%C3%A8s%20quoi
