In November 2016 the polo team from Cluj-Napoca was invited by the Inferno polo club from Waterloo, Toronto to play friendly matches.
A tour was held on this occasion for three different age groups: under 12, under 14 and under 16. There were lots of Canadian teams, but our under 14 team from CSM Cluj got the third place out of eight. This was remarkable.
We also had the opportunity to visit interesting place. One of the most impressive things I saw was the CN Tower.
The CN Tower is 553 meters high and it is the third tallest tower in the world. The glass floor was amazing because we could see people walking by down in the street.
Near the CN Tower, there was the Ripley`s Aquarium of Canada. We saw and touched different kinds of fish and other marine creatures.
I was really excited when we visited the Niagara Falls.
It is very wide and is probably the most popular waterfall in the world. Long time ago lots of people hoped for instant fame and they performed different stunts there. They crossed the river on a tightrope, navigated the rapids in barrels. Many people tried to conquer Niagara Falls: same succeeded, other died trying.
Visiting Canada was a great opportunity for me to discover new places and people, but also to improve my English.
