Day 32 - Off to Colonia del Sacramento
Today we took a two-hour bus ride from Montevideo to the small town of Colonia del Sacramento, which is across the estuary from Buenos Aires. I was really looking forward to this place (it's well known for its quaint cobblestone streets, good restaurants, and shopping), but within an hour or so of us arriving it began to pour. Not rain—pour. Luckily I managed to snap a few photos before the rain hit. This is the old lighthouse and some of the original city walls.
