Park, Buenos Aires
Hola!
Spent yesterday over the border in Uruguay, taking in the sights. I'm not sure if it was because I had come from Buenos Aires, but Uruguay seemed very relaxed and laid back; maybe a little too laid back, it seemed a little off-kilter simehow. Anyway, it was full of cobbled streets, old spanish and portuguese buildings, lots of bougainvillea and people zippig around on scooters.
Not having sealegs, the three hour ferry ride was mostly spent on the upper decks in the fresh air, and within running distance of the lee-side of the boat (just in case). The view on the way back to Buenos Aires was much better, getting to see the sun set over the river, and then the city lights as we came into port after dark. It seems very strange to think that it can take three hours to cross a river, and it certainly seemed wierd to see water the colour of the Yarra River on such a vast scale, almost like an ocean.
Will post the Uruguay pics in Concordia.
