From Niagara to Kristins

Woke and first point of order was cash some travellerâ€™s cheques since ATM hunting was pointless. Did the touristy thing and crammed in â€˜Maid of the Mistâ€™, â€˜Journey behind the Fallsâ€™ and an IMAX movie before about 3 pm Then it was bus station time, waited around for the 4:20 bus with a kid dying for a red candy ball and a Puerto Rican Tae Kwando team who was picking up some Japanese tourists. Now either the bus wasnâ€™t announced or it was announced while I was on the the phone, (though I heard no mention of bus 5) so I ended up making some frantic phone calls and changing from a bus to Hamilton (for the hockey, no-one was going to make it from Melâ€™s crew) to Dixie Mall, Missasauga.
So an hour and a half later (at least they have headphone slots on the bus) I rocked up to Dixie Mall which was surrounded by car parks, and didnâ€™t have a clue where to meet Mel. Helped out by really friendly customer service girl and security guard, and after a few laps tracked Mel down. Home, the Kristinâ€™s to meet the family, got served dinner on a TV tray (of note, eating a Tim-Tam was also a photo moment) and watched Game 7 of the Stanley Cup (New Jersey won it) Interesting day!
