I just got lunch. I spent just about 100 Uruguayos Pesos, that's only 4 bucks. The pictures will be up later, but basically it was a t-bone steak with a fried egg and french fries and also a soft drink. I've been eating so well since I've gotten to Uruguay. It's nice to be treated so well for so little money. Maybe that's because yesterday I went to an audition over here. At the hostel, there's this cool crazy guy who is all over the place and he told us that there's an audition going on at some place far away. So we went over there since we had nothing better to do. We got there and they tell us they're looking for foreign people who don't appear like they're from Uruguay and don't speak Castellano well. They're making a commercial for Tienda InglÚsa and for Uruguay's week, they're trying to do an Uruguayo football song but have foreigners do it so it looks funny or something. Either way it was something different to do. It pays decently and it would be national exposure. Obviously I know too much Spanish and don't look exotic enough to get the part. But we got to see new neighborhoods and great Uruguayo architecture because of the walk. And that was the good part.
