     Stopped by the tribute to Nikola Tesla. Nikola Tesla was born July 10, 1856 in what was then the Austrian Empire. He emigrated to the United States in June 1884 and on July 30, 1891,  became a naturalized citizen. He invented the alternating current (AC) induction motor. The power plants at Niagara Falls is based on his invention.Day 4047 Canada NY 4021_Fotor

     They did not tell us ahead of time, but walking back from Canada to the US there was a turnstile which required 50 cents, quarters only. We did not have quarters. We were two people without a Country.Day 4047 Canada NY 4085_Fotor

     Can you believe on the American side, they had barbed wire? What an unfriendly Country.
