Crossing Rio de la Plata.

Crossing Rio de la Plata.

On Monday morning Cecile and I left Buenos Aires to cross with Buquebus ferry to Colonia in Montevideo. We crossed in one hour and it was literally another country! I have been there in 2004 with my husband but the town has changed and grown a lot.
There is a new visitor center in Colonia where we enjoyed a short video about Uruguay, its history, culture, people, etc. It was a great way to welcome the visitor to the country!
We had a walking city tour in the historical Unesco town. We also visited and inspected a few hotels and then we rented a golf cart to drive around which was really a lot of fun:)
Later in the afternoon we took a passenger bus to Montevideo and arrived there at night. It was a nice ride with beautiful views of the country.
