Niagara Falls – Water Thunder

When you look at the magnificent waterfalls at the Niagara Falls, you imagine to take a thousand pictures to keep this memory living forever.

Waterfalls have received their name from a native word ”onghiar” which in translation means ”water storm”.

There is a legend that is also a part of the waterfall that says a story of a beautiful native Indian girl called ”Lelawali”. That is actually a love story with a happy ending. According to the legend, unable to stand up for herself and her fathers will and follow her heart, Lelawali decides to take her own life and takes a canoe down the falls hoping to take her own life. While falling down the waterfall, ”he-no” the love of her life, father of storm who lives in the cave under the waterfalls is successful in saving her and other ghosts alive in the cave under the waterfalls.

A genius who lit the world – Nikola Tesla

George Westinghouse and Nikola Tesla worked together in building the very first hydro-electric power plant near Niagara Falls which actually started the electrification of the world. There are some rumors about Adam’s Power Station (which are the only remains of the old Power Plant) of becoming a science museum. Adam’s Power Station is also registered as a National Landmark Historical Site. Each year about 8 million tourists from all over the world visit the American side of Niagara Falls and approx. 20 million visit the Canadian side. These falls are one of the most beautiful places in the world, without a shadow of a doubt. It’s the place where the electrification of the world started.

    I appreciate the most, how the stories are connected to to the pictures and at the end every reader has a feeling like he/she is discovering Canada s wonders once again. Even though for almost 4 years spent in Canada and visiting almost every city, town, lake and mountain, i begin to wonder if i was truly there. Jelena you gave me different perspective and i begin to think to travel again to Canada. Very nice written and i enjoyed reading your text.
    Sincerely yours

    Wow…impressive . Your article and pictures are gorgeous. I’m truly hooked. Thumbs up Jelena. Western Canada is renowned for its stunningly beautiful countryside, while Eastern Canada mixes the charm of Europe with the bustle of New York. International surveys frequently rank Canada as one of the best country in the world to live in. I’m lucky to live here. . For your next trip in Canada I recommend you to visit Alberta (Calgary, Edmonton), British Columbia (Vancouver) and Novia scotia (Halifax, Sydney) and share your experience and your feelings with us as you did in this article. Greetings and kisses from Montreal. Regards
