Today, the family took a ferry ride across Rio de La Plata to Colonia, Uruguay. I know that rhymes when you say Uruguay with an English accent (but it's really OO-ROO-GWAI).

It is a little colonial town with picturesque streets and artisans selling hand painted ceramics and musicians playing live music. A nice escape from the hectic city.

Leaving the port of Buenos Aires. Look at how brown that river water is. Yum.
There were a lot of old cars throughout the town? Not really sure why, but it certainly added to the rustic feel.

Live music at a café
The Spanish and the Portuguese really stamped this place.

Here I go with the bike pics.

Small town life
And, of course, no Latin American town is complete without stray dogs.

Hola, amigo
Livin' the life

Heading back to Buenos Aires. Great last full day with the padres. Hope to return to Uruguay soon.
Even though the padres leave mañana, we have a lot to look forward to! We are going out with our cousins Rodrigo and Santiago on Saturday--to "tomar unas cervezas..." in Palermo. Sounds like a blast to me.

Chau, amigos. Hasta pronto.
