Flag of Uruguay  , Punta del Este,
Monday, May 12, 2008

After a night in Montevideo, I was on the bus to Punte del Este, which is apprently Latamīs answer to St Tropez.
A quick look around tells you that itīs certainly an affluent place, as the shops & restaurants testify, but it was also clear that Iīm here out of season - the place was dead! Most of the hotels & shops/bars were closed up until next summer, and those that were still open were eerily quiet.

That said, it was quite nice having the place to myself, being able to walk around free of the crowds - and itīs certainly a nice place to stroll around.

I can only imagine what this place is like in the summer, but I understand that it heaves with all the wealthy/beautiful locals, Portenos, and now Brazilians, so Iīd look right out of place then...
