I failed to buy a ticket in advance which out have been a little easier. I got to the bus stop, but the place to buy a ticket wasnt open so I waited till it was open and actually didnt take the bus I was planning on. You can take a bus from Punta del Diablo to Punta del Este, but there is only one company (I believe it was Rutas del Sol). I ended up taking a different bus that left sooner to San Carlos which is a little ways away from Punta del Este less out of the way. And then I took a little city bus to Punta del Este. I wasnt planning on staying in Punta del Este. I just wanted to take a picture with the hand, walk around a bit and then go on to a smaller city.

Just to make my life easier I stayed in Punta Del Else. So I had to go to the bus station and get a map and directions to a hostel.

(I had done no research on hostels here) So went to a hostel and it was full. I went to another hostel and found a room. I spent the day walking around the peninsula saw the lighthouse, the harbor. I tried to see the hand, but there was a car race going on which blocked people from going to the hand. I saw the yachts and some sea lions. Everything there was super expensive. It felt like the Monaco of South America. Casinos, Yachts, and car races.

There were 2 guys from Argentina staying in my room who assumed the position of body guards. We walked around and watched some live music going on in the square. Not bad
