For the last hurrah of our trip we decided to spend a few days on the beach in Uruguay.   We took a ferry from Buenos Aires to Montevideo and then on by bus to Punta del Este.  The beaches were beautiful and we had a great time relaxing and soaking up the sun!

Along the coast in Punta del Este was some cool art work – a hand sticking out of the sand and some crazy mermaids.DSCN5819 DSCN5821 DSCN5836

Of course we ate some good food, including Uruguay’s famous steak sandwich called the chivito.  We stayed at a very relaxing hostel that had little cabana like rooms and made a delicious BBQ one night, complete with melty cheese and too much meat to eat.

We spent one day exploring Montevideo, the capital city.  We lucked out and got to see a samba parade the night we were there!
