Flag of Uruguay  ,
Friday, April 11, 2008


the switzerland of southamerica. Well there are no mountains here but its a very relaxing atmosphere, like switzerland. Its small though, about 400 km in diameter  (like switzerland!).

From Buenos Aires i drove up to Colon , AR, to cross the international bridge into uruguay.
I could (should!) have taken the ferry from buenos aires to colonia for about 200$, but... i didnt.

Some Basics about Uruguay:

Money: 20 pesos UR = 1$
Gasoline:  about 30 pesos a liter, thats 1.50$ . Thats expensive

But other than energy, thing are pretty cheap here.

The country is very clean, people are relaxed and very friendly,  its very save here too.

I didnt go to Montevideo and punta leste, instead crossed inland and spend to nice evenings in countrytowns mingling with locals.
That was probably not the worst idea.

After only 4 days i headed on to Brazil.
