Now in our last new country. Uruguay is not on many itineraries, especially at this time of the year, which suits us just fine, it's great to be in places where we don't see the same people we've seen before. Montevideo is a human sized city with plenty of interesting streets, buildings, plazas, and promenades - great for walking around and hanging out particularly when the weather is warm and sunny like it has been today. All of that said the highlight was lunch in the Mercado del Puerto - huge, juicy, cheap steaks and red wine in a place where everybody else was a local - fantastic :-)

Atsuko in the plaza which has some good sides and some not so good, the building behind is in the not so good category.

Restaurants aren't fancy, but the food is delicious.
