The land of markets and mate

I had planned to make it to MVD on a Sunday because I knew there was a famous "feria" (market) that day, and also candombe drummers practicing in the Barrio Sur.

    When I start taking trips to local dumps such as Centralia, I guess I'm ready to buy a ticket to somewhere...

    Hello Ellen! Next year (hopefully) I will be in Argentina and will also visit Uruguay, so going through your wonderful page on Montevideo was very useful for me and I will return for more. Happy Birthday from Finland!

    Enoyed your pages and enjoyed Uruguay. Yes, it would be great to restore some buildings in Ciudad Vieja!

    Hm, what stopped me from going there was that I needed a visa. Looking at your page I wish I had it :)))
