While in Buenos Aires, I spent $100 to get one more stamp in my passport. Well, four if you count in-and-out of one and in-and-out of the other. URUGUAY. Day trips from Buenos Aires to Colonia are common for ex-pats and foreigners who have to leave the country every 90 days. Buquebus company has figured this out and provides a really nice ferry service for about $98 US return. Well, I think it's really nice. I slept the entire one-hour trip both ways.
When I arrived, I went to the bathroom, (just me and the cleaning lady which is always fun) picked up a map and started walking. The first place I ended up was some sort of old fort with a broken down wall and some fake cannons where I took some pictures, blah blah blah.
I walked around some more, got some lunch and then rented a scooter. It was a fun, lonely day.
This is a picture of how disgusting I am. I sat down in the ferry terminal at this dirty table with my overpriced croissant and gross expensive coffee, and I saw on one of these trays, another uneaten croissant that somebody didn't want. So I ate it.

|Colonia is utterly filled with sweet vintage cars.|
So: all alone on a fun, lonely day in a totally gorgeous picturesque location, what's a girl to do? Set the timer and take some self portraits, of course!
