We of course got stuck at the border when the power went out and they couldn’t process us. I hid cheese in my handbag so they wouldn’t take it from us and we entered Uruguay surrounded by rain and grey clouds. Passing through the town of Fray Bentos, we parked for the night at the UNESCO World Heritage site, the old corned beef factory and took the tour the next day around it. We learned about how Argentina supplied the beef to the plant and almost 40% of the beef to the Allies in WW2. Also how they processed 2000 cows a day. Mind blowing stuff when you think about it.
Fun stuff. From there we headed to Colonia de Sacramento, a beautiful historical town complete with cobbled streets, huge leafy trees and cute restaurants in the old quarter. We were parked next to the football stadium and were party to a huge match between the capital, Montevideo and Colonia. We also met some lovely Turkish sailors/RVers, and had a barbecue with them.
