Speaking En Francais in Toronto: Part 2, Niagara Falls

The above picture I took at the CN Tower while standing on the glass floor. It was so cool!
Well, there's only two weeks left of the program I'm in and then I'll be heading home back to Winnipeg. I wish I could show you some beautiful food pictures, but for the past few weeks I've been eating the same cafeteria food day, after day, after day. Man, any more of this and I'm going to go crazy. Thankfully, I went to Niagara Falls this weekend, and contrary to my belief that Niagara Falls was a simple water fall in the middle of the forest, it's actually surrounded by what seems like a permanent carnival. It was here that I was saved and was able to eat some real junk food. Here are some photos from the trip. 
America was just on the other side of this border crossing.
 The American Falls.
And the Canadian Falls. Please tell me I'm not the only one that didn't know there are two falls! : )
After visiting the waterfalls and taking some photos, we walked through the carnival area for some treats before we had to get back on the bus.
Dippin Dots are so neat. The flavour I ordered was called Banana Split, which is a combination of Chocolate, Vanilla, Banana, and Strawberry ice cream.
And then while walking down the street I discovered this BeaverTales shack and almost started jumping up and down. I haven't had a beaver tale in years since the place at the forks that used to make them closed down.
Look at all those lovely flavours.
So naturally I had to get two. The one on the left is a hazelnut tale with powdered sugar, and the one on the right is a classic tale with cinnamon sugar.
So good! The perfect way to end such an exciting day. : )

  1. I have never been here and would love to visit Toronto. There are lots of Italians there from my region in Italy who emigrated there. I love the look of the food too!
