"Esos techos de rambla infinita
esas voces con techos de nada
todo viene a esta mansa bahía
mar de fondo de nuestras palabras
viene
duele
cae en la hondura
de cada soledad
viene amar
viene amar
viene amar a este Montevideo..."
Mauricio Ubal (fragmento de "Una canción a Montevideo")


Montevideo no es sólo la principal ciudad del Uruguay; es su cerebro y su alma. Un lugar amigable, donde aún se puede caminar sin prisa, y todo el mundo tiene tiempo para tomar un café y charlar con un amigo. Edificios bajos, numerosas playas, parques arbolados, niños jugando en las calles, seducen a sus visitantes.


"Those ceilings of infinite sea front / those voices with ceilings of nothing / everything comes to this meek bay / ground swell of our words / it comes / it hurts / it falls down the depth of each solitude / it comes to love / it comes to love / it comes to love this Montevideo..." - Mauricio Ubal ("A song to Montevideo")

Montevideo is not only the main city of Uruguay; it is its brain and soul. A friendly place, where you still can walk with no hurry, and everybody has time to have a coffee and a chat with a friend. Small buildings, several beaches, wooded parks, children playing in the streets, seduce the visitors.
