Colin and I Relaxing in Sacramento del Colonia

A great place to relax and chill out after the hectic pace of Buenos Aires. Wonderful people and so laid back. Hired buggy for the day and "did" the town and surrounding area.

Casa Pueblo, Uruguay

Casa Pueblo is remarkable art museum situated on a outcropping of rock 5 minutes from Punta del Este. The museum represents the work of one of the most famous Uruguayan painters whose name is Carlos Paez Vilaro. He traveled the world, experiencing different cultures and learning different techniques. He was fascinated by the island of Tahiti, which has a great influence on his work. The architecture of the museum, also created by Vilaro, is absolutely fabulous, built of adobe and rising out of the topography of the rocks in wierd formations and curves. The view from this site is breathtaking.
