    Montevideo, Uruguay/Addendum

    February 9, 2018 in Uruguay ⋅ ☁️ 77 °F

    Okay, it stopped raining so we went out again.
    There is a big pedestrian mall that we walked down and saw many beautiful buildings that are definitely tattered. We are in the part of the world where meat is a mainstay and barbecue restaurants are extremely popular. Our guide yesterday told us that there are very few vegetarians here.
    Headed to Brazil tomorrow and will be there for the next 3 weeks in various ports including the Amazon!

    Montevideo, Uruguay

    January 28, 2020 in Uruguay ⋅ ☀️ 75 °F

    Montevideo, Uruguay is a colorful city with some interesting highlights. There are new buildings juxtaposed with beautifully ornate old buildings that are almost all deteriorating. We didn’t get a good answer as to why this is, but we found the disrepair to be consistent throughout the city.

    Another interesting thing about this area as well as several other South American cities is they share a love of a drink called “mate”. It is a bundle of herbs (you buy these pre-assembled in various flavors and properties) and a heavy hit of caffeine turned into a drink. There is a special mate cup with an attached straw (see below). It is almost a ceremonial drink that is often shared with close friends. People will often consume 1-2 liters of mate every day.
