Small town with alot of heart.

This town pretty much follows its name...its a Colonial town where the streets are cobbled, the homes and old and life is pretty simple. The main purpose of this town seems to be the ferry connection to Buenos Aries in Argentina.

After arriving here with only half the group (other half slept in...big night last night), we only had one day here so as soon as we got here we head out to find some form of transport to explore the town and what better way to do that than on 4 wheels strapped to a lawn mower engine! Bring out the Quad bikes and skooters!

We drove along the coast line and back but not before riding around an old abandoned bull fighting ring. A short hour later it was time for the Barbara (the guide) and i to turn in teh quads to where they came from as teh others continued to explore with the rest of the clan who turned up to the town about 2 hours after we arrived.
So as the clan continued to ride for the day, Babs and i strolled through the old town through an old fortress before stopping for lunch where we had (i forget the name) miscellaneous BBQ meats served on a sizzling platter....great feed! follwed by a real great tasting ice cream (also forget the flavour name), but it was good. Ice cream in uraguay is goood!

Later that night we herad out for a facy dinner and an early night in as we prepared for teh final leg of the tour, Buenos Aries.

For a colonial town its pretty cool and is worth a viewing if ever in Uraguay.
