Colonia del Sacremento
My last stop in Uruguay was Colonia del Sacremento, opposite of Buenos Aires on the Rio de la Plata. This small town was founded by the Portuguese and has a nice well preserved old town with cobbled streets. A lot of backpackers do a dollar-run from Buenos Aires to Colonia because some Uruguayan ATMs provide dollars that can be changed on the Argentinian blue-dollar-market.
