Today was mostly a travel day, so this will be a short post. We left Colonia this morning by bus for Punta del Este on the east coast of Uruguay. The buses in south America are generally excellent with fast connections, and large terminals with tons of options. The terminal at Buenos Aires has over 200 ticket windows!
Punta del Este is about what you would imagine a smaller Cannes or Miami Beach to be. The main attraction is the beaches and the place is a major destination for water sports enthusiasts. Somehow we’ve also checked into one of these party hostels with loud music and staff who are apparently encouraged to “express themselves.” We’ll spend just one full day here and then it’s back to Buenos Aires and on to Iguazu Falls, so stay tuned. In the meantime check out some of the pictures of Punta del Este.
Incidentally, it occurred to me that the embedded map was not really working, so I have moved it to the links until we can figure it out.
