Day of Niagara Falls - 27 August 2010
Getting up at 7:30, we drove to the Niagara Falls at about 8:30 after eating breakfast. Instead of driving to Niagara Falls directly, we went to Kingston first. At Kingston, we visited Dr. Wang’s home and met His graduate student who joined us together. Then we started our Niagara Falls’ trip.
Niagara Falls, located between the Canadian Province of Ontario and New York of American, is a big waterfall on the Niagara River in the northeast of North America. Before our trip we had heard that the Niagara Falls is one of the most famous marvelous sights in North American, so we wanted to been there as soon as possible. But patience is required because it will take us over 6 hours to arrive there.
Half the way, we stop to have lunch. This meal was quite different from others because Dr. Wang gave us a chance to try Chinese buffet. The buffet restaurant has many different kinds of Chinese food and the food is really nice and familiar to us. Thanks to Dr. Wang.
We arrived at our destination, the Niagara Falls, at about 6:30 p.m... Along the main street, there are many stores with different features. After buying tickets we got on a ship with raincoats, which would take us near the falls. It was my first time to place ourselves in the waterfall. Everyone on the ship got extremely excited. Although we knew our camera would not survive if we took photos in the waterfalls, we still chose to take a risk since we couldn’t waste each exiting scenes we had met. What was more miraculous? I believe it is that rainbows can be seen on every direction of the Niagara Falls. This kind of experience is lifelong unforgettable. 下午六点半，我们终于到达了目的地——尼亚加拉大瀑布。主干道两旁有许多风格各异的小店。检票后，我们穿上雨披登上了驶向瀑布的游船。这是我第一次置身于瀑布之下，船上的每个人都无比的激动。虽然知道我们的相机可能在瀑布下无法幸免，我们还是冒险一试，这样令人激动的美景又怎能错过呢？！最动人心魄的美莫过于出现在瀑布每个角度的一道道彩虹了。这次的体验将令人永生难忘！
Our night activity was wonderful too. Dr. Wang and Mingzhi divided us into several groups and told us that we could go anywhere as we want. Our group went to see the night sight of the Niagara Falls. And we saw the beautiful fireworks. Then we roamed about every store we can reach. The stores here will never be closed, which is really good news to the tourists. Some of us bought some souvenirs here. After we finished our happy trip, we went back to our hotel at about 2:00 a.m. 晚上的活动同样精彩。王老师和铭志将我们分成了许多小组，并让我们自由活动。我们小组去看了尼亚加拉大瀑布的夜景，并看到了瀑布上动人的烟火。之后，我们细细品味了我们能找到的每一家街边小店。对游客来说最开心的是这里的小店都不会打烊。我们在这里买了一些纪念品。回到旅馆时，已经是凌晨两点了。
This is the last day of our course. There are lots of precious memory we will never forget. We all appreciate Professor Lougheed, Dr. Wang and Mingzhi who give us so many help. 这是我们课程的最后一天，这次旅程带给我们太多永远不能忘却的回忆。我们深深的感谢给予我们巨大帮助的Lougheed教授，王老师，以及铭志。
