Colonia del Sacramento, as I wrote earlier, is a very historic town that belies the complexity of the colonial times in this part of South America, when Portugal and Spain fought for control of the massive land expanses. Charming architecture and the old ruins of forts and walls take you back to olden times.
However, there is another element present in the town that takes you back to older times, though not as far back as colonial times: vintage cars! I was not expecting this and it was fun to run into old (parked!) cars as we explored the town. This is the kind of thing that makes me wish I were an expert in old cars as I would have greatly enjoyed naming models and years…
So, the only thing left for me to do was to capture the images and let any of you out there, via comments on this post, share your knowledge of these gems! And check out the last one – ingenious re-purposing of a vehicle!
And this old geezer has been turned into… a restaurant table! Ingenious!
