Old Things in Colonia de Sacramento: A Photo Essay
The world quaint might have been invented in Colonia de Sacramento, Uruguay. In fact, the word quaint might not go far enough in describing this little colonial city snuggled up on the coast of the Rio Plata. If it weren’t for the swarms of tourists that roam the streets on weekends one might wonder if the town has become a ghost town. Colonia is a very popular day trip from Buenos Aires, and it is easy to see why. The town is very quite, very tame, and incredibly beautiful. This little gem is as photogenic as a city comes as it is littered with old cars, funky street lights, and thickly painted walls. This is my photo essay of some of the “old things” in Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay.
