Colonia del Sacramento

Today, I'll bring you to Uruguay. I frequently go there, it's only 3 hours boat from Buenos Aires and it can easily be visited in one day. Colonia del Sacramento, or simply called Colonia, is a city in southwestern Uruguay and is the oldest town in the country . The historical parts of Colonia are named by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. I will show you many pictures in the future about Uruguay. This photo has been taken in the Whisper street - Calle D- Los Suspiros - and is known as the most typical, oldest st. in Colonia covered with pavements. Aujourd'hui, je vous amener en Uruguay. J'y vais souvent etant donne que ce sont juste 3 heures de bateau, et la ville peut facilement se visiter en une journee. Colonia del Sacramento, ou tout simplement Colonia, est une ville au sud-ouest d'Uruguay, c'est aussi la plus vieille ville du pays. Les parties historiques de la ville ont ete inscrites au site du patrimoine mondial par UNESCO. Je vous montrerai d'autres photos d'Uruguay plus tard. Cette photo a ete prise dans la rue des soupirs - Calle D- Los Suspiros - elle est connue comme etant la plus typique, la plus vieille rue pavée de Colonia.

It looks like a very relaxing place, actually.

Looks lovely (and warm). I'd love to go to Uruguay (and Buenos Aires for that matter). Any more snaps d Oh, for the summer. Thanks for bringing a little warmth. I shouldn't complain though in Barna.

C'est vrai que l'Uruguay - même Montevideo - semble très paisible quand on arrive de Buenos Ayres. C'est très relaxant, les gens sont charmants ( ce qui ne veut pas dire que les Argentins sont désagréables!) et tranquilles.
