Flag of Uruguay  ,
Wednesday, April 16, 2008

Hi Guys,well Brazil was awesome, i loved Ilha Grande,a tropical island on a national park(still in Rio)no cars aloud on the island & great beaches. Went to a reggae party where a live band played bob marley & sang in Portuguese.

I then spent 4 days in Paraty, a real nice little portuguese town with cobbled streets & no cars just horse & carts.

Sao Paulo was just a big city. I then headed to Iguazu & the waterfalls were great,so many of them & over such a vast amount of space. I will be seeing them soon on the Argentinien side also which is supposed to be more impressive!

So i got the bus across the border from Argentina colon to Uruguay,Montevideo & spent 5dyas here. It is a really clean country & the people are nice. Met a few people that speak really good English. The weather is getting cooler but still sunny most days. I took a bus two hours up the coast to Punta Del Este & spend the day there walking along the promande & visiting the beautiful beaches. I feel like i have left South America & am in L.A.

I spent the last night & day at Colonial which was also first discovered by the Portugese & a little like Paraty with small old cobbled streets,very historic town. The national language is also spanish here & i am trying to learn a few new words every day.

The best thing about Uruguay is the meat...I ordered steak & chips & the steak took up my whole plate with the chips on a side plate,all for a few dollars! The men are also really Hot here!

So now it's back to Argentina where i will do a new blog. By the way as you probably noticed the last photo's i downloaded where from Brazil but i put in the Chile Blog, sorry still learning & can't work out how to move them or delete them.

Bye for now my fellow friends, luv Jo.
