鉁˙eautiful Punta del Este in Uruguay. You have to go to understand what the buzz is all about. Many choose to stay around the Peninsula area where there is more of a downtown, busy feel, although the port area is an exquisite choice. Then continuing east there are different areas and neighborhoods like the reknown areas of San Rafael, with beautiful homes. Or for more of a rustic experience you can cross to La Barra, and continue to places like Manatiales, El Chorro, Jos茅 Ignacio, etc. #follow #followme #sigueme #uruguaynatural #uruguay #southamerica #puntadeleste #travel #travelling #passionpassport #buzzfeed #buzz #solotravel #beach #theworldmyvillage

鉁═here is so much to see in Uruguay鈥檚 country side. If you want details of places, you have to follow my Facebook page. But back to these photos, found these carts in the garden of the Hotel Suizo in Colonia Suiza. These used to be used to deliver milk and bread, carts pulled by horses. I think I remember when I was a kid seeing a few still being used, not any more. Those were the times that you could leave an empty bottle of milk outside your front door with money underneath it so that the milk man would switch it early in the morning with a full bottle with milk and take the money. What a great concept, where trust and doing the right thing was the norm. 鉁℉ay tanto para ver en el interior de Uruguay. Si quieres detalles sobre lugares a visitar tienes que seguir mi p谩gina de Facebook. Pero ahora vuelta a estas fotos, encontr茅 estos carritos en el jard铆n del Hotel Suizo en Colonia Suiza. Estos se usaban para repartir leche y pan. Creo que me acuerdo cuando era chica ver alguno que otro andando, los carros tirados por cabellos, ahora no hay m谩s. Aquellos eran los tiempos cuando uno pod铆a dejar la botella de leche vac铆a en la puerta de su casa con monedas debajo de la botella para que el lechero cuando pasara en la ma帽ana repusiera y se llevara el dinero. Que concepto genial, donde la confianza y hacer lo correcto era lo normal. #followme #sigueme #travel #viajar #solidarity #neighborhood #trust #instagood #instagram #instaphoto #history #milk #bread #foodie #tradition #tradicion #lecheria #panaderia #historia #uruguay #coloniasuiza #nuevahelvecia #uruguaynatural #chef

鉁╓hen you are driving and you have to kind of do a second take as you can not believe what you just saw. That happened to me as I was driving on Ruta 3 in Flores, Uruguay heading to Montevideo. I looked to the side while passing the Reserva de Flora y Fauna Doctor Rodolfo Talice (Wildlife Reserve) and saw what I thought was a camel. Later I learned that these are not camels because for example they have one bump on their back instead of two. There are other few differences but this is the easiest for us to know if the animal is a camel or a 鈥渄romedary鈥. The reserve is currently close as is going through renovation to improve and modernize the facilities as this is one of the major tourist attractions of that state (departamento). #followme #sigueme #wildlife #animals #camels #animales #camellos #uruguay #southamerica #floresuruguay #explore #learning #nature #uruguaynatural
