During the last two weeks of my exchange I decided to go to Canada to visit family friends. I caught a flight to Buffalo and then Bobby pick me and drove me across the border into Canada. Gill and Bobby saw to it that I got to see as much as possible during my stay there and also that I tried as much food as possible (I wasn't complaining). The Niagara Falls were incredible - I couldn't believe the mass of water flowing over the top. We walked around for about half a day going under the falls (through a tunnel) and trying to see as many view points as possible.

Next I went to the CN Tower. Right at the top is a viewing deck (enclosed) and a thick glass floor which people can use to freak out about how high up they are. For some its all about perspective. For those that are a bit more daring they get a thrill by walking over it. For those who are slightly more crazy they scare all the other tourist by jumping up and down on it. Guess which one was me.

Gill took me to see The Lion King. The movements of the characters were spot on - the leopards, giraffe and elephants. I also got to visit the Guinness World Records and have lunch in a Hard Rock Cafe. We spent the rest of the week travelling through the countryside - Canada in Autumn is incredibly beautiful with the red and orange maple leaves everywhere.

Time to head back to the states and then back to South Africa.
