Montevideo is a melancholic city. Joy and sadness parade on the city streets, passion and calm invade every montevideano and that is what keep this beautiful city moving every day. On my pages I will try to explain you how this city is, how the people think and why you will love it.

Una Canción a Montevideo

Con su voz marinera encantada
viene un viento inventor de avenidas
viene un cerro patrón de miradas
que va hundiéndose ahí en la bahía
vienen sueños
vienen pueblos
Con su voz de boliches y grillos
vienen soles de ropa tendida
ciudadelas de muros heridos
preguntando qué fue de la vida
vienen cielos
vienen fuegos
Viene amar
viene amar
viene amar a este Montevideo

Mauricio Ubal - Una canción a Montevideo (fragmento)

Montevideo tiene algo especial, seguramente porque es la ciudad en la que naci, o tal vez no, no lo se. Lo que si es cierto es que la quiero como si nunca me hubiera ido, como si cada día me despertara allí. Creo que es una ciudad para descubrir, para no quedarse con lo que se aprecia a simple vista, para hablar con la gente...hacerse amigos, andar en bicicleta, caminar. Montevideo es única, distinata de cualquier otra ciudad, por su gente que es su mayor tesoro.

Montevideo has something special, probably because it's the city where i was born, or maybe not, I'm not sure. What it's true is that I love as much as if I had never left, like if i woke up there every day. It's a city to be discovered, to talk to it's people, make friends, riding a bike, walking. Montevideo is unique, different from any other city because of it's people, this city biggest treasure.
