Flag of Uruguay  , Montevideo,
Saturday, October 9, 2010

Our first stop off the ferry/border crossing from Argentina to Uruguay was a little town called Colonia which has been heritage listed by UNESCO. It is cute and the old city is tree lined and is best seen by golf cart!

A short stay and lunch and we moved on to Montevideo which is the capital of Uruguay. Out for dinner that night proved to be more than just dinner, heading out to some of the local pubs to capture of the local live music and some real fiesta action on the street.
 
Suffice to say, the next day was a little slow in the start after chatting to some locals until the wee hours of the morning. I managed to get a haircut in and then headed to the local soccer game where the two local team Penaron (yellow and black) and Riverplace (red and white) were playing. It was not the most riveting of games as the favoured team of Penarol did not manage to score one goal and lost 2-nil. It was however a fun time out amongst the locals, who are all very friendly and up for a good chat.
