We stayed in Montevideo for three days. Montevideo is the capital of Uruguay and has a population of about 3 million people. The city has many beaches, that we enjoyed strolling along during the day but the actual tourist attractions are quite limited. The main central area felt quite worn down, and we noticed lots of homeless people. I felt like …

Lazy days...

We arrived in Montevideo after a fairly brief (for us) two hour bus ride from Colonia. We walked around town in the late afternoon taking in whatever sights we could; big man on horse on a pedestal in the main square, the beautiful buildings in the centre and (unsurprisingly, I've been told the story ends for the day with eating and drinking) the …

Back in Montevideo on the 16th, I tried a different hostel this time. Not bad at all apart from the lack of FANS in the rooms, come on guys!!! Met a few characters from different parts of the world and had a conversation in Spanish with a guy from San Francisco, good practice!

The best thing about Montevideo in my opinion is the promenade …

... and bellowed at him to F-off. Luckily, the guy followed this request and beat a hasty retreat down the road and off round the corner. Lucky too as well this was just the dummy wallet we were carrying with just a few pesos in it. We were a little bit thrown by all this so decided to go home. After a coffee and a cigarette - what problem is the world isn´t fixed by coffee and a cigarette? - we decided to not let it spoil the day and set back out for the market. Unfortunately ...

... del Este and it's apparently where all the rich Argentineans, Uruguayans and Brazilians go for vacation. If you're not invited to the "cool" house party then you're a nobody and may as well not have gone to the beach. They apparently change outfits three times a day there. Reminds me of parts of LA. The town is a bit odd because it is entirely sponsored by Citibank and Fiat. Everrrrrrything there is sponsored. The second beach was Punta del Diablo and it was much ...

    We were really pleased with how good a deal we got with this place. It was so cheap (cheapest in South America so far!). However, when we were there there was no life to it. Very few other people staying here, a fairly quiet part of the city and just a bit dull all round.
