Monday 7 June 2004 - Niagara Falls - Ohio

9:30 am - weather fine, clear and humid.

Up at 7am this morning for a return to the Falls, this time for the 'Maid of the Mist' boat ride - taking us right to the bottom of the Falls. We are issued with plastic ponchos and waddle lemming-style on to the boat. It is an incredible, beautiful experience. Bought some postcards to send to the folks back home, then hit the road to Sandusting, Ohio. Pass through some rather run-down parts, such as Cleveland.

My views on the political hues of this country seem to be reinforced. Yesterday at a gas station I saw a whole host of patriotic memorabilia - including that famous playing card t-shirt with the the words 'Saddam Hussein - we got him!' on it. What a load of gung-ho crap.

I'm incredibly jealous that you've been to Niagara Falls! I also wholeheartedly agree with your comments about the reality of American politics - gung ho doesn't come close! If only America were really like the West Wing... sigh...
