Colonia de Sacramento is a quiet port town on the Rio de la Plata. It was first founded in 1680 by the Portuguese, to smuggle goods across the Rio de la Plata into Buenos Aires. It's history is evident in its buildings and winding cobbled streest. Although a major tourist destination, it has been able to retain its authenticity and tranquility. It was a welcome break for me from the hectic atmosphere of Buenos Aires, the smog and the traffic. (see gallery for additional photos)
Just a place to keep our mates informed on where we are at, and what we are up to.
