yesterday we arrived in the 7th country of our south america trip – in Uruguay or in more detail in `Colonia del Sacramento´ a small village at the coast near the river delta of `Rio Uruguay´. we took the ferry over the south atlantic to get there from `Buenos Aires´ and finally entered the uruguayan land in the afternoon. although `Colonia del Sacramento´ is a very touristic place because a lot of Argentines come here to escape from the big city for some days it’s still a wonderful spot to walk around on the promenade or to walk down the beautiful parkways, to eat some good fish in one of the fancy (and expensive) restaurants or just to relax in the romantic parks. it’s a calm area where sun wind and salty seawater form the everyday life – a perfect place to get back to yourself and to dream a bit. one of our highlights here were the sunsets in the evening. everyone came to the coast to see the spectacular red, orange and yellow colored sky while sitting under a palmtree and drinking some red wine .. sounds good right ? but there’s also another option to get a view over city and sea: the lighthouse. when you manage it to get up all the stairs to the top you will be rewarded with a fantastic view – especially in the evening !!
