      ... this was going to end badly but already pressed for time we just wanted to get there. In no particular order he didn't know where the port was (despite it being a major bouncing off point for Uruguay), couldn't work his own sat nav, and couldn't read our map. He also insisted on knowing the way even when doing loops, and wouldn't listen to our directions (knowing the general direction).

If you really only have Argentinian pesos like us ( brought US dollars but 100 dollar bill and they won't return you change in dollars) just pay for your purchases in Argentinian pesos.

      We also found a casino. We resisted.

      We instead spent the afternoon on the roof terrace of the hostel which looked out over the river and was a very nice chill out space, I spent 20 minutes re stitching the seam on my backpack because our taxi driver on our arrival had been really rushed and ripped my bag out the boot, the rip was about 5 inches long and right on the seam of a handle so I can't use that one anymore and we shall see how long ...

      Beard One full day is all that's needed in the low-tempo, peaceful, but yet stunningly charming town of Colonia del Sacramento. Colonia, as it's affectionately known, is a jolly 50-minute ferry journey from Buenos Aires.
