Montevideo!!!

We debated stopping at another lovely beach town (Florianopolis). It’s supposed to be amazing, however the forecast suggested that Brazil had only more rain in its near future and we decided to give it a fond farewell.

Another short bus ride (6 hours) and we arrived in Sao Paolo. There we met up with family of one of John’s friends for a short visit, and headed to the airport for our next adventure.

Fantastic! Montevideo was wonderful! The weather was finally perfect; sunny, sunny, sunny, but mild. And the town was so incredibly likeable, we’d liked to have never left! It felt a bit to me like Denver. They have nice walking malls, polite people, areas of very modern construction and some much older. It was great. Plus, our place, Posada al Sur, was terrific.

We went for runs along the water, walked the town, browsed local markets, saw the sights, watched amazing sunsets, enjoyed the full moon, sat on beaches and finally went out salsa dancing! The nightlife continued to amaze us, as clubs don’t even begin to close down until 6am.

Advice for travelers: Don’t use the airport taxi to take you into town! Seek out a regular city cab for transport, unless you just feel like paying extra :-)

But alas! All good things must come to an end and it was time to head on our way, so away we went by ferry to Buenos Aires, Argentina. See you there.....
