If you go to Uruguay, you must stop at the World Heritage city, La Colonia.
We arranged our ferry from Buenos Aires to deliver us to Colonia, from which we took a bus to Montevideo.
It was about a 2 hour bus ride, as I recall.
Do not forsake La Colonia.
The lunch we found was just so so, but the wandering and exploring was fantastic.
We were able to store our bags at the bus station and then wander unencumbered throughout the day.
I think there was also ice cream involved later in the day, before our bus ride.
Mine was Dulce de Leche flavor, of course.
And it turns out our spring/their fall is a pretty fantastic time to visit, with beautiful light.
I kind of want to be those old people when I grow up.
Repeat after me: Don’t skip La Colonia!
