Uruguay and Colonia de Sacramento

On Thursday we boarded a high speed ferry boat for a 45 minute trip across the Rio de la Plata and into the past in the little village of Colonia de Sacramento in Uruguay

They have all kinds of funky art in the streets - like this old car where soil has been placed so that a tree can grow out of it. Nice touch on the art!

Many of the restaurants are open air since this is a water town and the weather is warm this time of the year. I especially liked the colorful decor of this one that beckoned street walkers


THe Spanish colonial style is attractive.

Uncle Wayne,
You're in South America! Why don't you stop and see us lonely Americans up in the north? You have to fly over Colombia to get home anyway. :) I hope you are having a great trip. I love the pictures!
