Wahoo Colonia is beautiful - full of pretty little houses and shops. It´s got a lovely little coastal feel to it, very quaint and a little bit rustic. Much more what we were hoping we´d find on our travels. Something different. Cities are great but it´s always brilliant to find a little place hiding away from the world.
We walked around the old remains, along the coast and climbed up the light house to discover that Colonia is much prettier from the ground! Plus this was the first sunshine we´d seen since arriving in South America. It´s amazing what a bit of sunshine does to a place. People are generally happier and wandering around in the sun is so much nicer than hiding under a rain mac (even if it is super cool and bright blue!)
We opted for the BBQ in the hostel for dinner. We ended up sitting on a table with 4 people from Buenos Aires. A great opportunity to practice some Spanish. I hate to say it but Aaron was brilliant and got right into the swing of it. My brain turned to mush as I struggled to find the words I wanted. Livid. I will eat more brain food and make myself practice cause I´m not having aaron out-do me at Spanish :) Was a really lovely evening.
Colonia is really small though so one night was enough to cover everything. We booked a boat back to Buenos aires for the next morning so that we could start our adventure back in Argentina.
