      Fray Bentos is a small city of 25,000 people sitting on the Rio Negro on the border with Argentina. It’s a really likable city with leafy green plazas, a lovely rambla along the river and a relaxed attitude. It’s a surprising place for one of the most important industrial revolutions in South America to have taken place. A couple of KMs from the central area is the Barrio Anglo (A suburb) sitting ...

      With temperate weather and almost no temperature extremes, Durazno invites visitors to discover this place all through the year.

      ... like this for hours. I have managed to change my Chilean money to Argentinean and call my bank in the morning. In order to change the money I had to register with that institution and tell them my passport number !!! When I called my bank I was informed that my card hadn't been stopped at all. And then 5 minutes later it started to work again (a miracle) :) I left the city as soon as I could without turning my head back. My glasses ...

      ... February 7 and 8 - Giovanna and I headed to the capital of Uruguay, Montevideo. Now as far as capital cities go this place is super mellow, all the people are layed backed to the point where they basically appear to sleep through life. One thing I really noticed here is how popular the drink mate (pronounced mar ta) is. This is basically a bitter but not at all unpleasant drink made from the leaves of the mate plant. The locals are ...
