We're making good progress cycling back from Niagara Falls to NYC, and are now in Syracuse. Our route took us through beautiful farm country, including on a dirt road curiously called "Turnpike Road." We passed several Amish families in horse and buggy:
The weather has been pleasant, and we enjoyed this sunset while in Weedsport, NY:
Sho made time to teach some soccer tricks to a little boy he met at a local swimming pool. Sho let the child score lots of goals on him, and when it was time to go, the boy didn't want to say goodbye.
