flashback: el 21 diciembre 2010. my friend amanda and i took the ferry over from bsas to colonia del sacramento in uruguay. tiny little waterfront town with lovely historic buildings. it is also historic because spain and portugal fought over it for a long-ass time. now it is a popular day trip. the world, how it turns! we rented bikes and rode around the town and down to the beaches. food is pricey and not at all delicious, but the view is swinging. my new mission is to open a restaurant with waterfront dining where the food does not suck. the trip to colonia, however, was fantastic. it made us want to spend more time in uruguay!
