We made an unscheduled dash over the border from New York to Toronto so that we could watch Liverpool in a pre-season friendly against Toronto FC. The deal was sweetened with the promise of a day trip to Niagara Falls.
The match was a 1-1 draw.
Niagara Falls was very pretty, although the town that has sprung up around it is the tackiest of tourist destinations. The best bit was going on the Maid of the Mist boat that takes you right up to the base of the falls to get soaked in the spray.
