Colonia to Carmello to Buenos Aires


So after Montivideo we headed to Colonia and after thinking we may have to spend another night on the beach we found a nice hostel to stay at. We met some irish girls and a guy from Holland who had adopted a dog and had been travelling with him for 6 months... he was really cute so we shared a room with them. Colonia is a really nice town quite chilled out with a nice beach and quay. We went up a light house and saw some museums which was interesting. We also saw some really nice sunsets whilst we were there.



After Colonia we got a bus to Carmello and little town which is a bit off the ´gringo trail´which was nice. We stayed in a hotel here which was one of the cheapest places we´ve stayed and we had a private room with a bathroom and satalite tv, it was amazing. We had a proper holiday day here and spent a day on the beach swimming and reading. We also went to a steak house and had an amazing meal with all sorts of meats, i think there was some intestines in there somewhere. The beach there was so lovely, it was fresh water and nice and clean and so warm!! There wasn´t much to do in the town but it was nice to wander and relax. So then we took the boat from here through the delta to Tigre a suburb of Buenos Aires which was a really great journey, loads of boggy islands to look at on the way.



So we arrived in Buenos Aires and got to our hostel where everyone put in some money and got a load of beer and meat and had a really nice BBQ. We had a day of walking around the town with no real aim, and despite getting a bit lost we saw some interesting old buildings- there are some really strange old antique markets and stuff in San Telmo, the area where we were staying.




Since we are going to take a spanish language course in Buenos Aires on our way back from Patagonia, we decided not to stay too long this time round so we booked a bus to Barioloche.
