Niagara Falls

This has been an exhilarating day. Jonah, Seb, BJ and I drove to Niagara falls. The drive was excellent. We had good conversation along the way. 

Niagara Falls 
Drive: Indianapolis to Niagara Falls
Start: 5 AM
Distance: 360 Miles
Expected Time: 9 hrs 5 Mins
Reached: 2:00 PM
Actual Time taken: 9 hrs 


On reaching the hotel that we had booked, we realised how crappy it actually was. Scottish inn is run by a Gujrati Indian and is horribly dusty with age old furniture. The refrigerator was filled with dust and looked like it was a century old. Anyways, looking at our disappointment and considering our shared ethnicity, the owner offered us a bigger room for the same money. 

Niagara falls is beautiful. We took a walk down the stairs that took us closer to the falls. The ferry ride called "maid of the mist" that takes us close to the horse shove falls was interesting. 












Almost 60% of the people there were Indians, 20% Chinese and rest from the other parts of the world. The light show at dusk was impressive.
