Getting here was crazy and hectic. We decided to take the subway from our hostel to the ferry terminal to save money. Taking the subway monday morning turned out to be a bad idea. The line up went from the ticket booth, up the stairs and down the street. It was insane. Once crushed nicely into the subway, it wasn´t too bad, until my nose started bleeding
The rest of the trip was a breeze. Customs were a joke, we could check our bags which meant not carrying our backpacks and the ferry was nice with good views were good. Once in Colonia del Uruguay, things just kept getting better! Once we found a bank machine and the right bus, we had a peaceful and scenic bus ride through beautiful colonia to our camp ground. The grounds are old and poorly kept, but the setting is perfect.
