I spent 4 nights in a small little town in Uruguay. Most people only spend one afternoon here, and possibly a night before moving on to other parts of Uruguay.
I like to give myself some down-time, so I am trying to stay each place for at least 4 nights, on average. As soon as I started wandering around this charming little peninsula town, I was enamored. It is a quiet, tranquil place. You can wander the grassy beaches, explore the old ruins of the neighborhood, or view the sights from atop a light house. You can sip your Yerba Mate on cobblestone streets.
I don’t have a ton to write about Colonia. I just really enjoyed the sights and the peacefulness. The locals were incredibly sweet and friendly. I was actually a bit homesick while I was here though. As much as I love this place, I found myself missing my family, friends, and kitty more than usual for a few days. I could easily come home any time. But I am determined to keep going. So i spent an entire day at Colonia on my computer planning out my upcoming weeks. Lot’s of amazing things in store.
