The tranquil Uruguayan town of Colonia del Sacramento is only a one-hour boat ride across the Rio de la Plata from Buenos Aires.  I visited the town back in 2008 on my first trip to S. America but Amy had never been.  We set aside a Saturday towards the end of our time in Buenos Aires so that we could pop across and get our fill of cobblestone streets, old cars, stray dogs and chivito.

Amy was even able to get her hands on some vegetarian chivito!

Massive plate of chivito.  Steak topped with ham, cheese and pancetta.  Served with fries, lettuce and tomato.

Thrify has rental golf carts!  Only for total lazies though as the town is very small and walkable.

If you need to fill your thermos with hot water (for mate of course!) you can go there.

Proof that I went to Uruguay: Uruguayan pesos and Uruguayan beer.

The fancy new ferry terminal in BsAs.  The one in Colonia is equally spectacular.
