Maybe just a little late... Here is part 1 of our Uruguay travels, roadtripping up and down the Atlantic Coast.
We started in Montevideo, where we perused bookstores with used and reasonably priced books.
Oh, how I lamented not buying the Birds of Uruguay book. We saw so many amazing storks!
And we saw our first opera together: The Marriage of Figaro in four acts... a five hour show sans dinner. Oopsies, we were famished.
Though we didn't get any photos of our undernourished state.
Just one a la Beatles.
On our way to posh Punta del Este, we stopped for ice cream in Periopolis.
It sounds Greek, but it reminded me more of Santa Cruz, California,
except for the whole Atlantic theme. It was chilly, though,
so we opted for hot drinks instead.
Don't let the pretty palms trees fool you.
While we were both jonesin' for an Atlantic sunrise, which neither one of us has ever seen, all of our Atlantic mornings were way too overcast and foggy.
Instead, we have lots of foggy beach photos...
|+ eucalyptus groves popping out of the fog in the pampa.|
One day we lost our way on the coast, + came across...
a backward fantasyland amid thick foliage.
I thought only a bull would be able to save me.
But in the end, my husband came to the rescue. When the sun cut through the fog, we walked
along the veranda of a curvy castle.
Wishing you a beautiful week. Stay tuned...
