We awoke early this morning, once again feeling the effects from the night before... Damn that Argentinean music and cheap beer. Unfortunately, in my alcohol infected state I had chosen not to pack my bag the night before, thinking that I would be fine to wake up and do so at 6am the next morning... I somehow managed to achieve this, however, how... I am not sure? Fortunately we took the one hour ferry ride (rather than the cheaper 3 hour ride) over to Colonia del Sacramento in Uruguay. It was a beautiful town which consisted of both an old and a new section. Once again the old section was built out of cobble stone streets and old colonial buildings. We decided to hire a couple of bikes and explore the small town. We later regretted this decision, as Jaclyn felt rather sick and we learned that we could have hired a golf buggy for the day for only a little bit more. Even if Jaclyn hadn't have been feeling sick, this would have been a whole lot more fun as we learned from two other Australian tourists that we met that afternoon. These guys came back to the hostel with massive cheeky smiles on their faces as if they were 7 years old again and showed us videos of them doing time trials and donuts in the carts. I must say, I was a little jealous! 
Whilst exploring, we climbed the local light house and managed to get a good view of everything that the town had to offer. As Jaclyn was feeling crook after lunch, we went back and had a siesta before exploring the streets by foot again later that afternoon. Like all South American towns/cities there was a market and we also managed to see another beautiful sunset. It was also at this place that Jaclyn experienced her first dorm experience. I must say she handled it extremely well!
