available is Hotel Sol Colonia at US$70 for a double room. We are not convinced so waste 15-minutes verifying this. A guy offering rooms tells us everything is full but we mention the Hotel Sol Colonia and he calls them. They have 1 room left and will hold it for 15-minutes.
COLONIA DEL SACRAMENTO – HOTEL SOL COLONIA, US$70
SUNDAY 14 FEBRUARY – Valentine’s Day and our idea of being here in a nice hotel is shot so we will move on. After the hotel breakfast of coffee, juice and pastries we head to the bus station. Turil bus company U$50 (£1.50) at 10.30am will take us to Juan Lacaze. It is a very comfortable modern bus but after less than an hour we have to change to a country bus for the last leg of the journey. We take a taxi out to the farm, U$140 (£4) to meet our host Juan. His father is also there at the farm but just visiting as he is now retired and rents the farm out to his brother. Juan is a teacher and lived in the city with his parents but recently moved back into the farmhouse so that he could receive Couchsurfing guests. Romina from Switzerland is also visiting and has been here for 2 weeks. Unfortunately they seem to be going through a time of plagues, first dragonflies, and then bugs and since yesterday the worst of all mosquitoes. Very frustrating as 1km away is a beach but you would be eaten alive before you could get there. After a delicious ravioli dinner we need to wash up and find that the kitchen taps are out of order. It is quite a laugh doing the dishes in the shower. The farmhouse is large but has not been lived in for many years needs a lot of work. In the evening I put on a movie and we round of the night playing UNO.
NR JUAN LACAZE, COUCHSURFING WITH JUANMONDAY 15 FEBRUARY – It has been so quiet here during the night that we don’t wake up until ¼ to 10. There are lots of eggs here from the chickens so I cook us scrambled egg on toast to eat with Romina. Steve gives Juan a knock just before 1pm as we need to go into town for food.
