Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay. I mentioned this city in an early posting, and because I have tons of pictures taken there, I share one more with you today. A visit to the historic center of Colonia is like a walk back in time. Founded in 1680 by the Portuguese, this old colonial town is renowned for its cobbled, windy streets and colorful houses reminiscent of old Lisbon. The following picture really looks like there are shooting an historic movie, and what we see could be the movie set. Well of course this was not the case, I'm just making it up ;) Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay. J'ai deja parle de cette ville dans un autre "posting", et evidemment nous avons des tonnes de photos. Une visite au centre historique de Colonia c'est comme remonter dans le temps. Fondé en 1680 par les Portugais, cette vieille ville coloniale est renommée pour ses rues pavees et venteuses et ses maisons colorées réminiscentes de la vieille Lisbonne. L'image ci-dessous ressemble vraiment au tournage d'un film historique, et ce que nous apercevons, pourrait être le set du film. Evidemment, ceci n'était pas le cas, je ne fais que l'inventer ;)

Wow, this is such a catchy photo. Did you something with Photoshop? This could be used for a post card of picture book for sure!

Anyway, congrats!!!

Karine - Nice shot and Photoshop work! The car reminds me of the jeepneys in the Philippines.
