Colonia was founded in 1680 and is now a UNESCO world heritage site. The street shown above has Portugese buildings with the original cobble stone road. There are lots of old cars in the old town area, as you can see below. I came here on the fast boat from Buenos Aires and will leave tomorrow by bus for Montevideo. The hostel I'm staying at is on the main road. Along the pavement during the daytime you will find dogs sleeping in the sun. By night, they run up and down the street trying to bite the tyres of passing cars.
