This has been a week full of travel and adventures. The adventures range from navigating Canadian roads, highways are often one lane going each direction until you are near a major city, to seeing the majestic Niagara Falls.
This week began in Edmonton, seeing Columbia play the United States in a 2-0 victory for the United States. There were nearly as many Columbian fans as American, it was great to hear the chants echo back and forth as each country tried to out cheer their rivals. It was a tense game due to a missed penalty kick by Abby Wambach in the beginning of the second half; however, the USA’s skill shown through in the end. Friday the USA played China to a 1-0 USA victory in Ottawa. There were many Chinese fans and it was an exciting and tense game. It will be great to see the match-up between the number 1 ranked German side and number 2 ranked USA team in Women’s National Soccer on Tuesday night in Montreal.
This afternoon , June 28, we went to Niagara Falls and got to view the majestic natural beauty and power of the immense falls. There are a couple of main sections where the water comes crashing down, each showing their unique dominance of the landscape and their utter vastness. Experiencing this was like nothing I have ever done in my life and I hope you enjoy the glimplses of the Earth’s beauty.
