The guy showed me around the city and it felt much different than Buenos Aires. It was much more accessible and less.. well, endless. I suppose that after being in London I preferred cities that allowed for getting lost but wasn't overwhelmingly huge. (As in, if I wanted to meet someone it wouldn't take an hour for each of us to get to the meeting point.)
Many of the things that I saw were historic. These included the old city gate, the market and major buildings. Probably the most memorable was mock sword-fighting with a street performer dressed as Zorro. We got burritos for lunch that were decent and then ice cream / gelato. At night, I had dinner with the family and even got to watch a football match on TV with them. The team from Montevideo, was victorious in their match. =)
