The main tour group left for home at 4 a.m. yesterday morning and we headed across the river to visit Uruguay later in the morning. We had a one hour ride on the Buquebus (pronounced Boo-key-boos) ferry ship and are checked into the charming colonial Posada Don Antonio. The courtyard is full of pottery urns filled with flowers and trees and there´s a great pool too. Colonia is a UNESCO world heritage site dating from the 15 and 1600´s. The streets are cobblestones and the buildings are old, old, old. It´s like time has stood still here! We explored the streets and wandered around, taking lots of pictures yesterday. Debbie and Lou Hesse from Washington State are here too and the guys have just gone to pick up a rental car so we can try driving and getting lost out in the countryside today.
The weather during this whole trip has been marvelous - sunny and around 25 - 28 degrees. We haven´t used our jackets at all and Bob´s been living in shorts. Going home to snow is going to be a real shock!
I wish I could show you some pictures but be prepared for photo overload when we get home.
Gotta go - the guys are here with the car! Take care!!
