Crossing To Uruguay

Buenos Aires Harbor
Buenos Aires Harbor

Not yet tired of Buenos Aires, its huge steaks and great nigtlife, we nonetheless decided to travel further, to Uruguay, a country we had never been to. Montevideo was supposed to be a great capital, small and safe enough to be traveled easily, yet very nice to visit.

Uruguay is right across the Rio De La Plata, a short three hours boat ride from Buenos Aires. We boarded the Eladia Isabel ferry with about 2,000 other people (or so it seemed) and watched Argentina´s capitale fading away in the glaring sun.

I soon realized that the Rio De La Plata wasn´t your usual boring blue river. It was a nice bronze color, rich of the copper flowing from the Amazon. The resulat was a cocoa-colored water – not muddy, just creamy. It contrasted deeply with the green deck of the boat and the deep blue sky, making us feel like we were navigating a giant cappucino. Yummy.

Uruguay, on the other side, looked much greener than Buenos Aires. We passed small bushy island and we saw colonial buildings, far away. A peaceful view.

We jumped on the bus, barely out of the boat, and dozed off on our way to the capitale.
