I had no expectations of Uruguay. I didn't know much about it so I was pretty much open to anything.
First stop: Punta del Este. The Miami of South America. Beaches, buildings and glamour everywhere. Only the crème de la crème makes it there for the holidays because it is rather expensive. Local and international celebrities spend their summer vacations there - Shakira was there at the same time as us.
Beautiful sandy beaches.
They have a very interesting advertising system. Instead of distributing flyers to everyone, they put stickers on the cars. And this is the result.
Then, we went to Montevideo - it's a mini Buenos Aires. Nothing special, but seemed to be a very pleasant city to live in - but not to visit as a tourist.
And the last stop was Colonia del Sacramento, north of the country - only 40Km away from Buenos Aires by ferry. It's an amazing small colonial town - it was like traveling back in time. It has tiny paved streets:
And cafés and bars at every corner. It was an amazing place.
Anyway, it's getting late. So I wish you all a good night!
