Where I stayed
We went to this awesome flea market that took up a 6 x 6 block radius filled with all sorts of junk. The unique thing about this flea market was how much stuff that, if you found it in the US, would be incredibly valuable
This is where I got my first real indication of how crazy people are for maté here. I figure that if you see one person walking down the street in Montevideo, there is a 30% chance that they are carrying a maté, some yerba, and a thermos full of hot water. I estimate that there is a 10% increase in probability for every extra person added, meaning that if there are 2 people walking down the street, there is a 40% chance that one of them has maté materials. If you see a group of 8 people, it´s practically a guarantee.
Anyways, the basic thing about Montevideo was that it was great and I am a little bummed I didn´t decide to spend more time there. Owell, I don´t think it´s going anywhere. Ciao!
