Some of you may suspect that I’m not having a great time over here, having read my previous posts. Well, yesterday we drove to Niagara to see the Falls.

Okay, so the drivers were still idiots, and the roads are full of lumps and bumps, but the 2.5-hour trip out (only two back – how odd) was well worth it. Even though the temperature was around 30°C by the time we got there, and the humidity correspondingly high, it’s just such a lovely place to wander around.

We didn’t have time to do more than cruise the part of the town on the other side of the hills, and Niagara-on-the-Lake was a bit of a whistle-stop tour, but we’d seen the falls, which was the main thing. I could spend hours there, with the right person and the right camera; as did many of the other tourists, politely walking around other tourists who were having their photos taken with the Falls as backdrop.

So you see, it’s not as bad as I may have painted earlier. Mind you, I’ll be back in the UK in about 40 hours (as I write), so I’d better make the most of the last 24 hours here… and top up my tan a bit…
