To Buenos Aires

We spent most of Friday and Saturday in Buenos Aires visiting friends from the US who have family there. We took a bus to Colonia and then the Buquebus ferry across the Río. The bus took about 3 hours and the boat took about 45 minutes.

Argentinian protestors had threatened to stop the Buquebus ferry as part of their economic blockade of Uruguay during the tourist season. The protesters closed the border at Fray Bentos for the entire summer last year and they are blocking it now. The protestors announced they would expand their blockade to include the ferry, but Argentina's government intervened, so we were able to travel.

We didn't spend a lot of time in Argentina but we enjoyed what we saw. I'll post some pictures soon.
