If you would be a
real seeker after truth,
it is necessary that
at least once in your life
you doubt, as far as possible, all things.
Rene Descartes (1596 - 1650)

Travel Index:

Iguazu Falls, Misiones Jesuíticas, Montevideo, Colonia

March 3 - 23, 2005 part II:

  • flew to Iguazu to wander the town and tremendous falls
    Better than Niagra!
  • toured the Misiones Jesuíticas
    a world heritage site
  • took the Buquebus across the Río de la Plata/River Plate, a rather strange name for what is translated in Spanish as the River of Silver
  • In Uruguay I toured Montevideo that got its name from
    Hill/Monte + Number Six/VI + deo (deo = from east to west, a sailing direction).
  •  dropped down to Colonia
    another world heritage site.
  • Then I went home.
