Cobo Polonio, Uraguay

URUGUAY | Monday, 7 July 2014 | Views [216]

I was headed through Uraguay on my way to Buenas Aires Argentina and was looking for some place off the beaten path. Met some people on the bus and they recommended a place called  Cabo Polonio. I found it on the map and bought my bus ticket. The bus dropped me off along the side of the road at 4:30 in the morning outside of a town called Rocha. It was cold, I was fortunate to find a restaurant, it was closed but I saw someone inside. I knocked on the door and they were kind enough to let me in. (I had no Uraguay money, good they take US dollars). Waited for daybreak and took a taxi to Rocha. Got a 1:30pm bus ticket to Cobo Polonio. Get off the bus and I don't see a town. Turns out had to take a large 4x4 truck to get Cobo. Fun ride, 10 minutes through woods and sand dunes and another 10 minutes riding along the beach. Anyhow it was quite a day of travel, I finally did make it and it was worth the effort. See pictures

About lipowcan8

A quick recap. I visited 19 countries in 212 days, traveled 46,000 miles by air,15,000 miles by land and spent about $25,000. My feet got beat up a few times and I twisted my ankle a couple of times.  No plane, train, car, bus, tuk tuk or taxi mishaps, not even a fender bender. I wasn't threatened or harassed and amazingly enough I didn't lose anything. It's hard to believe seven months have passed. As I said in my first entry.....a wonderful way to celebrate 60 years of living. It sure was!
