Learning about democracy in Uruguay

That wasn’t planned!

As we arrived in Buenos Aires following our adventure in Antarctica, I kept hearing Uruguay mentioned. Day trips across the Rio de la Plata, or perhaps more.

We had given ourselves a generous 6 days in Buenos Aires, and with no concrete plans for the next destination, Uruguay just fell into place.

And what a delightful discovery. Whilst we only ventured into the two major cities on the Rio de la Plata – Colonia de Scaramento and Montevideo, it was enough to get an understanding of the wars and their effects on this part of the world.
