Niagara Falls- A Sight to Behold





















Spent the last week vacationing in Boston, visiting my old school and taking my parents to see the Niagara Falls up in Buffalo, NY. The weather was glorious and we stayed at the Seneca Niagara Casino Hotel and spent 3 days there, just relaxing and taking walks along the falls and Niagara State Park. The US side of the falls, the horse-shoe shaped one paled in comparison to the size of the actual Niagara, seen from the Canadian side. All it takes for an entry into Canada, is a mere 20 minute walk along the Rainbow Bridge to go from the US side. Of course, you would need a valid visa to enter the US again, such as a green card etc. But, really enjoyed the grandeur of the Canadian portion of the falls and highly recommend it to all visitors, its definitely worth seeing than the US side of it.

Off to Mauii in Hawaii for another vacation with special K tomorrow.

Happy Long Weekend!!!

Wow! Must've been wonderful showing your parents around the place you lived and studied!

I remember the first time we visited the Niagara, the Canadian falls was so near yet so far! Exactly, last year around this labour days hols, we got to see the falls from the Canadian side and realised what everyone had been raving about!
