Not too far from the capital Montevideo, only 1h30 by bus : Punta del Este!
Unfortunatly today it s raining, and really cold... Shame!
I found a pretty huge city with high rise buildings everywhere, this is the place to be in summer time, a must for New Years eve! It turns into an expensive city for jet set and so on...
Am the only one staying at the hostal, and wondering why... As I arrived there, the owner a 60 yo ´business woman´ started to say : "What the hell are you doing here in winter?" - well because you think I know maybe???
This woman really impressed me, she has an opinion on almost every topic, and at 60 yo, on top of having created this 20 dorm. space hostel last year, she still managing a construction company..
Of course, law season, so the streets are empty, 2/3 of shops are closed, it s raining like hell, and even in the cyber I found, the guy had to turn on a computer, and switch on the lights too, which bother him a lot apparently... but he did it! So, not complaining...
Might only spend 1 night here...
