Towards the end of my stay in Argentina, I get my passport back from the embassy and immediately buy my ticket to Uruguay for later in the day. I head to the ferry docks and meet a bunch of American guys. We all get in the ferry together and they ask to see my passport and make contrasts and comparisons to American and Canadian passports.
About an hour later we step on Uruguayan soil in Colonia del Sacramento. The American guys and I follow the guide around town. Turns out to be a pretty progressive society for a predominately Catholic region. Much hotter then Buenos Aires, I keep slathering on sunscreen likes its going out of style. I find a Uruguay flag patch for Saphire (my backpack)
They tease me about Rob Ford, I tell them that I didn't vote for him. Don't tell them that I didn't vote in that election (first and last time that will ever happen!)
Get back later in the day. We see a half asleep guard dog a customs that was there when we first left. Poor guy
It was a bit of journey back, got lost along the way. It's pretty late. So I go to bed right away, with more drunken travellers in the background.
