Breathtaking Niagara Falls by Pooja (The Indian Traveller)

From the mouth of an elephant (not literally)If something forces you to stay back home, sip mini-spring water bottles, cancel your Saturday night plans and tell the world how you feel ... there is no looking back. River of milk is what I used to call it. Or more like a chunk of cloud, which magically transcends into a huge flow of milk, which when kisses the earth manifests into salty waters... not like those you witness on beaches. but those which are much more blue, more saline, more stinky if I may say so, yet so much captivating you want to be there, like forever. You are standing in the lines which take hours to reach the cruise, there is humidity in the scorching heat, you almost give up with the thought of dehydration or even worse, but yet you do not give up. Seems more like waiting in queue for a religious place where every devotee has one goal, to catch the sight of the holy deity, in our case the humongous beauty Niagara Falls.
