Uruguay

I can't really justify a full journal entry for our time in Uruguay, we spent just four days in South America's smallest country. We had intended to stay longer but prices scared us off a little bit and so we returned to Argentina after visiting Colonia del Sacremento and Montevideo.

Colonia del Sacremento was well worth visiting, it's a pretty former smugglers town that reminded me of a Cornish village. There were colourful shopfronts and cobblestone streets and a lovely lighthouse that we ventured to the top of. 

Montevideo was a bit of a write off for me. The hostel was party central with blaring music until the early hours right outside the dorm room. It was too expensive to enjoy restaurants or cafes and the museums (we visited three in one day) I found to be disappointing for a capital city. This was just my personal experience, I'm sure others have visited and loved it. 

Still, it's a place we can say we've ticked off our list.
