Dogs and cars of Colonia

Dogs and cars, an odd combination?  Both have a story in Colonia.  First to the dogs…The dog of Uruguay is the Cimarrón and is the mascot of the National Army of Uruguay. It descended  from European dogs brought by early colonizers.  A great variety of dogs live in the streets of Colonia;  they are tame, petted and fed by local dog lovers,  but  not owned by anyone.  Below are a few of our four legged new best friends.

And now the cars…Because for years there was no car manufacturing plant in Uruguay, new cars were a rarity.  Today there are many interesting vintage cars on the streets.
