  • walk around the old town go up the lighthouse  today we have beautiful weather for that  

  • it's a beauty of a town you know yeah the way  they've kept it it's uh it's amazing far less  

  • tourists on the weekdays as well oh yeah yeah  huge difference huge difference from the weekend  

  • we must be about maybe 10 people walk  around in this area right now and uh  

  • during the weekend there were hundreds  and hundreds of them you know like  

  • but i mean big groups yeah tours tours and school  groups as well school groups children yeah yeah  

  • but definitely it's a nice place if you come  to uruguay you gotta come and visit this you  

  • know yeah it's more of a weekend destination  isn't that yeah two days i would figure that  

  • two days is plenty yeah to see what you have  to see here the old part that's where it has  

  • the charm you know and let's go check out  the lighthouse let's climb the el faro

  • hey

  • oh i made it the views are incredible i'm  up there really i would say they were so so  

  • no from the very top you did you barely made  it to the top hey i stuck my head out okay  

  • but yeah i'm kind of reminded of whydon't really like to climb bell towers  

  • that one was very i felt claustrophobic going  up it's just the steps are very narrow and  

  • there's a ladder at the very end the ladder  at the end and i didn't i didn't love that the  

  • where the balcony was that the railing basically  went up to my stomach kind of feels like you can  

  • just like easily flop over anyways we're just  both people that don't really like heights  

  • and i noticed other people didn't mind it at  all so don't let my information scare you i'd  

  • go up for the views and yeah the price is very  good it's only what 30 uh uruguayan pesos yeah  

  • it's less than a dollar so less than a dollar  yeah it's about 70 it's about 75 cents to go up

  • i got some artisanal ice cream because  it's turning out to be a warm day  

  • this one is strawberry water-based strawberry  they also have like a creamy strawberry  

  • 80 in local currency so like two us box worth  that worth it cooling down huh i'm very good  

  • there are quite a few ice cream  shops there's also a fredo next next  

  • around the corner argentine ice cream  very good stuff we had that the other day

  • tired from barking all day did you bark too much

  • well we've checked out of the airbnb we're at the  bus terminal now killing some time yeah there's  

  • only one like four or five blocks to walk here  yeah fairly easy fairly easy it's just our bags  

  • are happy we've we're touting extra tannat wine  and souvenirs at this point so like our bags feel  

  • like twice as heavy anyways so we've got two hours  to kill the bus terminal we found a cafe at the  

  • very end of here one of the things that i'm having  is empanada i haven't had an empanada in uruguay  

  • yet what kind did you get i got salami and cheese  i've got all the meat and cheese in there and yeah  

  • this is how we're spending our last few hours here  in colonia really excited to go to montevideo the  

  • capital city of uruguay i was there like almost  10 years ago and it's a place i really really  

  • enjoyed again it still has a really cool colonial  vibe but it's obviously much much bigger than here  

  • there's more markets to explore there's more  restaurants there's more sites more historic  

  • sites to check out so yeah i'm super pumped  that we're gonna have four nights there i mean  

  • the first day is just getting there but then we're  gonna have three full days to explore i checked  

  • the weather looks like we're gonna have beautiful  sunny days highs of about 20 to 25 every day it  

  • just looks perfect killing time now until we get  on the bus and we should be there around five  

  • we'll take a cab to our place drop off our bags  and then scout out a really good place probably  

  • to get a steak tonight so i'm excited about that  all right guys so we're almost ready to get on  

  • the bus so we wanted to give you a quick update  talk about prices so you have an idea of how much  

  • it costs to travel from colonia to montevideo  uruguay we're going with a company called and we  

  • paid 424 uruguayan pesos which comes to just under  seven us dollars correction i'm doing my math all  

  • wrong i got like the the converter app and i was  doing argentine pesos instead of uruguayans so  

  • we're talking 11 yeah it's not seven still  a good deal not seven bucks eleven bucks

  • well we made it we have arrived capital city of  uruguay here we are montevideo home sweet home  

  • we rented an airbnb right on plaza independencia  overlooking a beautiful square with palm trees  

  • how was the journey the drive over it was only  three hours so three hours a nice uh bus uh ride  

  • lots of farmland yeah it's uh this uruguay this  area is just like the the province of buenos  

  • aires in argentina the pampa flat land you know uh  some cows and some uh crops but no major towns or  

  • cities along the way no nothing none whatsoever  it looked very rural but uh yeah now we're gonna  

  • go eat because uh our lunch was very lean and uh  i didn't have breakfast this morning the gut is  

  • empty what would we eat here in the capital in  uruguay that you don't even ask in uruguay you

  • we've had some aggressive tannants yeah this is  this is the smoothest one so far the uruguay is uh  

  • is making uh some nice wines you know with  this kind of grape and they are slowly  

  • gaining gaining ground quietly silently nobody  knows nobody suspects they keep doing stuff like  

  • this they can go really far it's a small industry  i guess but uh it's got a lot of potential yeah
