Goodbye Sun, Uruguay
I recenlty visited Colonia del Sacramento which is located in the South West of Uruguay. Colonia is a charmfull place and its landscape creates the perfect scenery to relax. Walking through the stone streets, you can find wonderful houses, each one of them decorated with flowers which give them a great frame. If you love taking pictures, this is the perfect place to do it. In each step you'll make, you'll find something worth being photographed.
On the old town,the houses are alligned to create a great intersection with river, so each corner is amazing. Walking around, you'll feel curious about the lives of those who have the privilige to live in one of those incredible houses, which in general count with a balcony where you can spend the whole afternoon chilling.
The port of Colonia is one of the main atractions, people walk through the wood pasarella while hanging their cameras on their arms and enjoy a perfect promenade with the view of all the boats that are moored to the port.
If you go to Colonia, you definately have to stay till the sun goes down. You better find a good spot, because the boardwalk gets a bit crowded because nobody wants to miss the great spectacle of the sun going down and reflecting its beam through the water. The sky gets coloured with more than five different colours, and if you're lucky enough, you can see the sailboats passing by.
