After our short visit to Guayaquil, we caught the flight to Montevideo, Uruaguay. Then, off on a 3 hour bus ride along the coast to the historic Colonia.
We passed countryside and many ranches and farms. The cattle population of Uruguay is about 4 times as large as the human count! Beautiful and green.
We could see the Portuguese influence in the Old Town. Different architecture and cobblestone street styles than we see in Cuenca. We can see why Colonia is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Colonia is big enough for fairly large supermarkets and a compact shopping mall (where Nancy found her favorite Sketcher Brand shoes that fit!) Colonia's population is aboout 27,000, so there are some services here.
Fun Street art.
