I left Sao Paulo and arrived Montevideo, Uruguay at 1am. One piece of interesting history of Uruguay. Only with population of 3 million, they have won the World
Cup Soccer 3 times. Our travel plan was to rent a car and drive to Colonial del Sacramento for 1 day, and then to Punta del Este for 2 days.
Arriving at Mmontevideo airport at 1am
Welcome and Ohla Uruguay !
The first day started with a very blue sky.
We stayed in this nH Hotel at Montevideo.
Churches stood very part of the town.
Original stone paved market street.
Modern apartments with Air Conditioning ... heheee..
This used to be palace, but now it's just an apartment.
Someone is having a good time overnight!
Different signpost on the beach front.
See all Bettle lasts forever.
8am at the Montevideo Beach.
Cementario ! A lot of Generale were buried here ...
Montevideo Ferry Terminal
BUQUEBUS is the ferry crossing Rio del la Plata to Buenos Aries
Who ordered this rare beef ?
Parilla !! It means "Grill Food" in Espanol.

100 feet tall lighthouse
Hang on, just don't fall
Sun is setting ...
Walking down ...
Notice the changes ?
The guy in front of us was not riding a horse. He was actually just sitting on the towing arm of a dolly.
Isn't she cute ? She served us some salami in a Superercado on the way from Colonial back to Montevideo.
OK, this is the real sunset ....
Punta del Este
Welcome, Uruguay toll booth....

You really see a lot more once you get up here !
Just a log and very blue sky ...
Endless stretch of beaches
