Due to these climatic constraints today was another low key day in Montevideo. As a small victory, however, today was the uruguayan 'dia de patrimonio' which, as far as i can see, is just an excuse to boast about how good the country is for no particular reason. What it also meant though, and infinately more relevant to us shallow foreigners, was that all the museums, court buildings etc etc would be open all day and all 'gratis' (thats free by the way in english - 2 weeks worth of spanish right there).
We decided that our public building of choice would be the palacio legislativo, which is basically their houses of parliament
We then contrasted this piece of history with a visit to a shopping mall (the weather was still bad). This had the opposite effect; crowded, modern bland architecture and although it was massive it didnt seem to have anything that we wanted. We did by some more milk though that we needed, so thats alright then.
