we walked to canada and all i got was this passport stamp: niagara falls



 

we started the second day of our road trip at niagara falls. before we even had a chance to walk through the park and see the falls we stopped to take pictures of these beautiful tulips. while we were taking our pictures, a gentleman from the niagara gazette stopped us and asked if he could take our picture for the daily snapshot. we said yes, obviously. because who doesn't want to be in the newspaper?


this is james neiss. i couldn't resist taking his picture while he was taking mine.


you can see our picture here

ps. this is the first time csv is referred to as doctor in print. so cool.

 


this picture was taken on the new york side of the falls. niagara falls, ontario is in the distance.



the whole time we were enjoying the falls we were debating whether we had time for a quick jaunt to the canadian side of the river. finally we decided that it would be quicker, and cooler, to walk across the bridge than to drive.


 

since there was no line, i even convinced the border agent to stamp my passport.



  

we were only in canada for 15 minutes, maybe less, but we were surprised to find out that the view of niagara falls is actually significantly better than from the us side. it's definitely worth the walk, so if you get the chance, take it.
