Adventures through South America...

Surf and Sand

Got to Uruguay yesterday! Our beach house is pretty cool. Cozy (meaning we are all sleeping in the same room)!

We spent a few (more than enough) nights in Buenos Aires partying (no surprise there) and I can´t wait to get back! We took the boat on Friday morning to Colonia, Uruguay, then a bus to Montevideo and THEN a bus to Punta del Este. So we have made it almost to the Brazilian border. Yesterday the weather was absolutely horrible, and nothing in the town was open. We were worried we´d be stuck here for two weeks without anything to do and in not nice weather!!! But we woke up this morning and the sun was shining!!

When the sun comes out, so do the people! It was awesome and I spent some time in the ocean bodysurfing. Feels great to finally get to the beach!

Our place has an outdoor BBQ and a couple of fireplaces inside and a fully equiped kitchen and a jacuzzi in the bathroom - so we arent really roughing it!

Other then that, we plan to take a day trip to Punta del Este tomorrow to do some banking (theres no bank here....only 700 people) and then spend the next couple of weeks on the beach!!!
