So after 6 hours on the bus i am back in salto, Visiting my family here, I feel like i must say once again how amazing everyone in uruguay has been to me friends family everyone in every city, Just amazing, Iīve been treated so amazing the whole time, It makes it very difficult to leave, Obviously as now iīve almost beeen here for 2 months hehe.

None the less i think i will get going in the new year once things calm down with the holiday chaos until then i will continue to enjoy time with my family.

A side note i thought iīd add if your comnig to uruguay around the holidays and you think yo heard a gun shot, Well theres a pretty good chance its a small child playing with firecrackers, During the festive season all day and most of the night you heard big bangs going off, Althought iīm told it is now ilegal, It is still tratidion and you see firecrack stands all over the country.

Other side notes and observations.
The new govīt has baned drinking in public, Regardless if your with a local and you seem to have forgoten your bottle opener, Theres a pretty good change your local friend may ask them for assitance in opening your beer.

The new govīt has banned drinknig and driving, Most locals seem to aprove of this, While i am n ot sure if it is just in the capital city, it seems the rules vary from city and regions.

I think the funniest rule that the police seem to be enforcing the most is No more selling burn Cds Yup thats right, Donīt you dare sell a burnt city on the streets of uruguay, Of course everyone still does, Its pretty funny youīll be walking down the street and a sales person will see the police drive by, close up his lil case and table and bolt!
Now they have a few scemes to get around this
A) they hide behind a newspaper stand so the cars cant see them buy pedestrians can
B) they have the legit copies on the table, And on top of them is a book of all the cds they have access too.

My parents have no arrived safly back to edmonton to a balm 10 degrees below zero, Or as Edmontonians call it A heat wave, Unfortuantly there luggage disapeared under the high quality of service given by Air Canada, Also known as North americas Number 1 Air carrier.
Which makes me ask myself If air Canada is the best, And SUCKS, How bad are the rest?
I guess thats what happens when you put profits first, and customer satisfaction isnīt on the list.
I think after flying singapore airlines nothing will ever compare again.

Well i think thats about all i got for a lil update at the moment, Looking forward to enjoying a uruguayian holiday season, And i guess see where life takes me in the new years, Defiantly feeling the itch to keep moving hehe i keep spending so much time on the buses but never really go anywhere :P

Merry christmas
