The roar of nature
That’s how Indians called this phenomenon. And that’s the meaning of the name in Indian.
An Indian legend tells one of their gods planned to be married to a local beautiful girl Naipi. However, she didn’t have such intentions and fled with her mortal lover Taroba with canoe. The refusal of god it is not a joke… and the two lovers soon discovered it. The angry God cut down the Iguazu River and vowed them for a “forever falling”.
Niagara falls is quietly flowing river Ontario, which after a kilometer transforms its energy into powerful wildly roaring water flow.
Aleko Konstantinov , famous Bulgarian who writes nice travelogues, called The Lucky One, has expressed widely everything. I suggest you to check his experience. And I am not going to present you a short story of what is described about this miracle of nature – Niagara Falls.
Niagara Falls is a group of waterfalls, part of them are on USA land and the other part is in Canada. I have never been in Canada, but I did see it from the USA side. I will share with you the most expressing photos, because the words will be not enough to express the charm and the beauty of this phenomenon.
There is another legend an Indian told us – if you reach and cross the rainbow, then you will be as strong as the water as an element of the nature and you will have special power and energy.
Ok, Let’s go!
It is very nice how is organized the Niagara Falls area – you can use transfer to every impressive point of the Niagara, also you can reach the museum, watch the movie about Niagara and be in a total harmony with the nature.
When you are on the USA side you can see how in Canada people are walking, taking the bus, drinking wine on the top of a huge building with amazing view to the Niagara Falls. On the Canada side the view, I heard, is wide since in USA side you can go closer to the waterfall and can’t see the view as spacious as in Canada.
A breathtaking view from Canada side… Find words and describe it to yourself… I can’t find any words…
You probably know a lot about them. If you have had the chance to meet one of them – you are lucky forever. My friends asked me about Indians. How they look, what is their behavior. My answer was THEY ARE DIFFERENT. They are with different culture and attitude. I have met some of them and I have had a talk with them. An Indian man shared with me and my travel company some very strong herbs. He explained they are good for our intern energy. Then he walked with us for the night colorful show of Niagara Falls.
What I felt when I looked into the water was an expression of million sounds, colors, songs, I felt I am in the water, swimming… then I felt I probably can fly … I could do everything. At one moment we saw the water like pure paradise.
I know it was about the herbs, you guessed it, too. But these plants gave us not just the view of the show, but the feeling of the water. We were in the water with our energy, we saw splashing water into our faces, we did feel it. Amazing time! Amazing view and magnificent feeling, the feeling you are alive. Suddenly, we realized the Indian man was gone, we didn’t know when and how we didn’t see he’s living. We didn’t say goodbye. The only thing I remembered was his smile when he said “ I am with you my spiritual friends, because we exchanged our energies”. My skin is goosey even when I think about it.
Ok, when you stay in this area you should check the local Hard Rock Cafe! Every good story ends better with shots.
PS: I hope one day to be lucky enough and be back, have a look when The Niagara Falls is frozen. A little voice tells me one day I will be there at the perfect moment. And this voice reminds me of my Indian friend.
