Viva Las Canada

Welcome to Niagara Falls. Would you like a really, really big bed?

Falls #1

Poncho Town.
Smurf City.
Disneyland Ontario.

Everyone’s blue, poncho’ed
against the mist and spray
of the friendly neon-lit natural splendor.

Schlock romance!

Honeymoon suites with
heart shaped beds,
heart shaped tubs,
heart shaped towels.

Cosmic dinosaur mini golf championship.
Big screen wrestling at the Hawaiian bar.
Wax museum upside down house of horror resorts.

And on the American side:
21,000 tons of toxic waste
dumped in Love Canal.

  3. The trick with The Falls is to move away from the gaudy centre and also take in Niagara on the Lake – Fort George, Navy Hall, and Butler’s Barracks, Queenston Heights, & Shaw Festival Theatre. Always keep in mind Canada is part of North America, as is the U.S.A . We are a bit different from each other, eh. 😀

    • We did actually go to Niagara on the Lake. I think we bought three hats in thirty minutes, before suffering a mild practical art overdose. Good times!
