Two Years Off Photos from a backpacking journey around the world

Across The River To Uruguay

Being just a 2-hour ferry ride away, we crossed over into Uruguay for 3 days in the capital city of Montevideo, as well as the quaint city of Colonia del Sacramento. Compared to its neighbor Buenos Aires, Uruguay feels slower-paced and its people seem a bit friendlier. We rented bikes and mopeds to practically explore both entire cities, including the shoreside Ramblas of Montevideo, or boardwalk avenues. It being such a short stint, we decided to take some time off from photography so we only have a few shots from our time in Uruguay!

While seemingly everywhere in Argentina as well, Uruguayans are fanatics over mate, or the local hot tea drink, which is prepared in specialized mate cups, seen here.

A small, quaint town, Colonia still has its share of traffic jams!
