Niagara

During the weekend of 3rd September, I set out on my longest drive ever to visit my 'little' sister who most people consider to be my grandmother. I was driving from Durham, NH to Toledo, Ohio. A 13 hour drive according to Mapquest!

I passed very close to Niagara Falls on the way to my sister's place and decided on the spur of the moment that I would take her to Niagara. So after spending a day catching up with the happenings in her life and doing some basic shopping, we started for Niagara on Sunday morning. It was a real fun trip that I do not have words to describe. Take a look at the pictures I've embedded below.









Here's the car I was driving..



I got home on Monday night. I had driven exactly 2511 miles. 4017 kms ie. I feel great.

Today is my birthday.. Happy Birthday to me.. I love ME. :-)

Hey Leon, belated birthday wishes!!!! The Niagara falls are pretty amazing. When I went there someone told me that an old woman jumped into the falls sitting inside a barrel and lived to tell the tale!

The falls is one of the few places where any photograph taken looks professional! The falls are gorgeous. On both sides! :P

Leon said...

[Vidya] Do I interpret the first two lines to mean.. "Hah.. big deal.. Anyone could have taken those photographs"? :D

Oh yeah? A guy could want a lot more.. cakes, chocolates, flowers, cards, hugs, kisses.. :p.
