So we arrived in our 3 country: Uruguay. It felt very western and very chilly compared to Brazil. I was looking forward to putting on my jeans that night! But first we had to find a place to stay. After taking a cab from the bus terminal we did not like the original place we were going to stay, and so we hoped on a bus. Or Mo hopped on the bus and the driver drove away with her and not me! I went running after it and she tried to tell him that I needed to get on the bus, and so he stopped and was oh so pleasant. We paid for our fare and smiled nicely and he was such a jerk
But here we were and needed currency! And here we go again! I think we visited 5 banks or more until we finally could get some money out! How frustrating!
We tried not to let it all get us down and decided to look for a bike rental place. I was so looking forward to renting a bike and taking a ride on the coast, but the stars were not aligned and so we had to walk. But there was not much to see and after a few hours walking next to a main drag we turned around and headed back to the hotel. Diner time it was and we had a great meal with wine and pasta! We had not had wine in so long! And then right below our hotel was a great little Irish pub! We had not been in one of those for the entire trip either! There was even an Irish/Scottish band with kilts and everything! And the beer was a local microbrewery that was dark and smooth! I was in heaven.
