An unexpected day trip

A travel blog entry by dennisj84


So we woke up expecting to just go around the downtown area but we got an offer to go on a day trip to Punta del este which is on the coast.

Inside there were hardly any lights on, just a few cinema-style lights to show you the way, except for a spot light on a monument in the middle of the room besides which two guards were standing motionless in the darkness, all day.
