Just across the river from Buenos Aires and 1 hour by boat, you have Uruguay. I’m told it’s not a spectacular country, but when so close it would be stupid not to make a stop. It’s also my gateway to the next stop, which is still unclear. The question is: Brazil or Bolivia…
My first stop in Uruguay is Colonia del Sacramento, where I only spend 1 night. It’s a small and charming town, but besides that there is not much to do. The next morning I already leave for Montevideo, only 2 and a half hours further along the coast.
The city center is very small and in 2 hours you have seen all historical buildings and plazas. Thank god Montevideo has more to offer: beaches! So I take some time to relax on the beach, swim and play beach volleyball with the locals. The 2nd night is the start of the carnival period in South America and we have a great party with the people from the hostel.
Maybe it’s because it was a very short period here, maybe it’s because nothing spectacular happened, maybe it’s because I’m still wasted from the party yesterday but… That’s all I have to say for now!
Oh, some side notes... After my wallet was stolen in Buenos Aires, I’m still surviving. My parents are sending me money with Western Union so I’m surviving well. And, I have finally decided to go to Brazil after all! In a few moments I’m heading for the bus to Florianopolis!
