Where I stayed
Montevideo reminds me of the pictures i've seen of Lisboa, Portugal. At various points in the day i forget i am here and imagine a tram passing or a that at some point i'll pass the cafe a Brasiliera and see his little statue sitting out front resting against a tiny cup of coffee. It's a small city, roughly 1 million inhabitants...i believe....only urban.
Everybody here drinks Yerba MAte and it appears at all hours ot he day and night. I think i can count on my hand the amount of people i have seen without either a thermos or gourd in their hands.
The city really hasn't begun to recycle it's older buildings which is a bummer because of the astouding archtecture. eh?
I got to go inside of Guisseppe Garibaldi's house and sit in his chair.
