Knowing we had to get to Patagonia while the weather was still good and the fact that we wanted to experience Carnival in Gualeguaychu (Argentina), we only had 6 days to see Uruguay.

First stop, Colonia Del Sacremento. We caught the boat from Buenos Aires and following a quick interview by a local TV company, we found a hostel and checked in. Surrounded by natural brown water we loved this place pretty quickly. Old stone buildings, cobbled streets and super restaurants. We also discovered that Uruguyans are NEVER without their mate drink in hand (herbal tea) and thermos!

There was a pier too where at 1am (basically mid afternoon in this part of the world), there was a fishing competition, nice.

We hired bikes and checked out the area, great town to visit!

Next stop, Montevideo...large_Colonia.jpg
