Our final destination in Uruguay was the city of Colonia del Sacramento (referred to by locals simply as “Colonia”). We were offered a ride, so we packed our gear, hopped aboard El Capitán’s auto and took the scenic route up the coast. Geography Colonia sits upon a peninsula on the Rio de la Plata, 180 kilometers…
When we left you, we had failed to cross Laguna Rocha and settled down to camp in the yard of some hombres, cocks, and hounds. The Next Morning… We awoke at 6am to a cock-a-doodle-doo. This gave us an early start.
How we ignored an omen and then things got weird. Uruguayo style.
We’ve been on the road for about a week now.
After postponing our departure twice (the first time due to Montevideo’s awesomeness and the second due to stormy weather), tomorrow morning we are loading up our steeds and heading east.
