Fast-paced. Bustling. Crowded. All idioms many metropoles and/or capitols would easily put on their calling cards. All descriptions that would feel very out of place in Montevideo. In fact, if 'crowded' found itself in the Uruguayan capitol, even in the pub district of La Ciudad Vieja after midnight on a payday Friday, it would nervously excuse itself and haul a taxi to get on the next speedboat across Rio de la Plata. Even if 'bustling' and 'fast-paced' assured it that they could do ...
We awoke to another overcast and windy day but were hopeful that as we headed north to Montevideo the weather would improve. Breakfast was our spoils from the grocery store the day before - bananas, strawberries and some small pastries. Medialunas, or small croissants, seem to also be a common breakfast food in Uruguay. The countryside here reminds me of driving in the Albertan countryside except there are palm trees mixed in ...

We caught a taxi from our hotel to the main bus terminal at Tres Cruces (3 crosses). Uruguayan taxi fares are a lottery because even though they are metered the fare displayed bears no relation to what you are asked to pay. The driver pulls out a chart and points to a different amount because you pay extra for luggage. The bus station is located with a new shopping centre on top so we bought some things for lunch and boarded the bus for the first leg of our journey back to ...
