    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.

    ... of Uruguayan independence, and his huge statue tops the eerie underground mausoleum, permanently guarded by two soldiers.

    We ramped up the excitement for the imminent World Cup by visiting Estadio Centenario, venue of the first final in 1930, played between Uruguay and Argentina before a crowd of 93,000, won by Uruguay 4-2. The stadium was built in a record time of 9 months by an immigrant workforce - puts Brazil 2014 to shame! The stadium ...

    ... the caramel was cold and jelly like and just did not taste nice. After spending something close to 2 hours for lunch - we headed off again, this time to the congress (?) building? This building was simply breathtaking. The architecture, the pillars, the statues and the enormity of the whole thing was just wow! We only stopped for a short while and then made our from within the city to the surrounding neighbourhood. Then we went along the coast which ...

    ... to hand wash underpants he'd been wearing for three days. I'm not sure I could EVER commit to such a proposal. Checking out, for which we were suffering a Pueblo Sol hangover, the hostel would only accept cash despite their website stating otherwise. The hostel's litany of foul-ups was damning; no hot water, no electricity in our room, broken A/C, a lack of card paying facility (which the website clearly stated), and to top it all off the most unreliable wifi in Uruguay. ...

    ... We got to the old part of town in time for lunch and ended up going into Havana-a lovely cafe we knew from being in Salta! I skyped Tara and we hogged the internet for a good hour before leaving! Typical travellers! There isn't much to Montevideo really, it has one Main Street for shops and the old town that leads to the port. We decided to get some food at the supermarket that night and a bottle of ...

    ... tomb of the General with soldiers still guarding his ashes. We then walked through the city to the site of an indoor market, but it turned out to just be restaurants. Disappointed, we carried on and picked up some more Empanadas for lunch (we like Empanadas!) and walked north-east to the tallest building in Uruguay. This monster, which stands at a whopping 37 floors tall (sense the sarcasm?) looks a lot like the Spinnaker tower in Portsmouth. We were very ...
