It was wet and rainy, and it remained that way for the good part of a week during a month in America. It was quite apt that we were visiting two waterfalls for the next few days, Taughannock Falls and the infamous Niagara Falls. We had a humid walk to Taughannock Falls, it was really quite beautiful. It sat among dark green trees, streams and eroded ground. It's actually taller than Niagara Falls which I thought was crazy. That night we all went back to camp and most of the group decided to embrace the rain and set up a Slip N Slide from a few pieces of tar-polling and a squirt of washing up liquid - I watched from the side lines!
The next day we headed for Niagara Falls, we placed the blue bags over our bodies resembling lines of smurfs and made our way onto the Maid Of The Mist. I thought about Bruce Almighty the whole time, I'm not going to lie. It was surreal, the volume of water is insane and there were rainbows scattered along the water, we were getting soaked and we were loving every second of it! My favourite part by far was The Cave Of The Winds, this time sporting yellow bags. Here we really did get soaked, we were dripping! It was a good thing we had bags to go over our feet. Damn I should have done an OOTD. You could literally go underneath the pouring falls, one of my favourite moments of the trip by far!
The next day we reached Cleveland, had a stop off at The Rock And Roll Museum for a couple of hours. It was filled with memorabilia of artists, John Lennons passport, Elvis Presley's outfits, and I saw the real handwritten song of American Idiot. It was interesting and I learned so much about singers, bands and the history of Rock And Roll. That night we chilled by the lake beside the camp site, had a BBQ (featuring very very char-grilled burgers!) and warmed our feet by the fire.
Oh, and by the way have you tried Cheetos? I blame them for my eminent weight gain, but it was so worth it.
