Uruguay

This was a five week, 2,000 kilometer loop ride beginning and ending in Buenos Aires.  The trip started with a ferry ride to Colonia in Uruguay.  We then cycled interior rural roads east across Uruguay to Chuy, Brazil, before turning around and following coast roads to Montevideo.  After three days in this laid-back capital we headed northwest to Paysandu before turning south and catching the ferry back to Buenos Aires.
