Early Birds Heading for the Ferry

Heading abroad is just a simple case of picking your passport, your ticket and your bag(s). These guys are just about to leave Buenos Aires and embarking the speed ferry for a trip to Uruguay. I took this picture at the Buquebus ferry terminal in Puerto Madero. Taking the ferry to Montevideo or Colonia del Sacramento is a fast, convenient but also relatively expensive way to cross the Río de la Plata, the natural border between the neighboring countries. Anyway, I really liked the morning glow at this day. The sun was still low and some of the passengers hold up their hands to cover their eyes because the sun was shining very brightly.

I would like to be among them and board a ferry to either one of these beautiful cities.
