I've posted some from our camera of the glacier. Ok posts lots! I couldn't help myself... But I'm having issues getting the photos off my phone. Whomp ...
... in Montevideo I then got a bus, luckily one straight from the airport 2 hours to Punta del Este. I got something together from the supermarket and then went to chill on the beach and read my book. It was so lovely. Today it's a bit cloudy so I met for a walk for about an hour along the coast and then I had some lunch in the hostel. This afternoon I will see what I'm going to do. If it brightens up the beach and if not I might go and check out Punta del Este centro, about 15 minutes on the ...
