Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

Montevideo is the capital city of Uruguay. It seems like it would be a nice place to live but didn’t have many touristy type buildings. There was a couple that was dancing tango outside a restaurant, the schools were all wearing these painting smocks for their school uniform and the beer bottles were slightly concave […]

Uruguay is a small country to the south of Brazil, and north-east of Argentina. It has a population of 3.5 million. Capital city Montevideo (population 1 million).
