Travel to Toronto
I went to Toronto in July 2014. I went there with my older son and my friends. Our first stop was Niagara Falls. When the bus drove close to the bridge, I heard a loud sound from Niagara Falls. The bridge is between the U.S. and Canada. When the bus crossed the bridge, I saw Niagara Falls. It was amazing. A lot of water fell down on the lake at the same time. At that moment, I felt the power of Nature.
We passed Niagara City, then we went to Toronto. We took a two-hour boat trip around Lake Ontario. Lake Ontario is a beautiful lake, and the water is blue. I had never seen such a beautiful lake in New York.
When we finished the boat trip, we went to Toronto Tower. That is the tallest building in Toronto. There are 447 meters of metal staircase built in the Tower, and there are 1,776 steps. It is the world’s highest metal ladder, but these steps are used for emergency use. There is a glass floor at the top of the Tower. Standing on the glass floor looking down, the people looked like ants, and the cars were the size of my son’s toys. If you are scared of heights, don’t look down. I looked out of the window at the top of the Tower, and I saw whole City of Toronto. I saw the houses, I saw the boats on Lake Ontario, I saw a small airport near Lake Ontario. I felt that everything was like the city of my son’s Lego toys.
After we left the Tower, we went to the Chinatown to eat. We ate Chinese food. The Toronto Chinatown was similar to New York’s, but smaller.
The next day, we went to the Thousand Island Lake. The Thousand Island Lake is between the U.S and Canada. It is a scenic spot with 1,865 small islands which belong to the U.S. and Canada. We took a boat trip around the Thousand Island Lake, and ate breakfast in the boat. Many islands had beautiful houses. After we finished the Thousand Island Lake boat trip, we came back to New York.
