We are looking so forward to New York as our hotel looks very nice in the ...
... There was a very little amount of water in the falls and Nathan, Nic and Alex (with bandaged hand) scampered up to the base, while the two little ones and I relaxed and waited. We then caught the shuttle into the village and had some lunch at the village grill.
