... in conga lines and generally having an amazing time we eventually ran out of cider and started to feel a little bit sticky with sweat and cider. We decided it may be best to leave soon. We managed to find our way out of the mayhem with the intention of getting a taxi to the beach and washing the cider off us in the sea. Getting a taxi in Montevideo is just as difficult as anywhere else on New Year's Eve especially as they have a rule that if you're not wearing a t-shirt you're ...
