Surprisingly, one of the only things written in English we came across was this ‘Locks Fountain’ in Montevideo. The sign red “The ledgend of this young fountain tells us that if a lock with the initals of two people in love is placed in it, they will return together to the fountain and their love will be forever locked.” On the first day of our 113 day trip, we decided not to take that risk.
Some of the only decent coffee in Montevideo, we found this cafe to be charming, with a better English music selection than most coffee shops back home.
The “Old” section of town had some lovely shops and stands.
It’s at least 85 degrees F outside with 55 percent humidity and they’re sticking to their open pit barbecues! Good thing too, we loved the food so much we came back for seconds the next day.
A well barbecued slice of beef next to a refreshing salad. I can eat this way forever.
Ben and I are taking the time to journal on this trip, both online and in our travel diaries.
A little first day sunburn.
We figured that if an artist had his own musem in the capitol building then he must be pretty important. Or the Country is lacking in artists. Turns out, it’s a little of both but his art was very intersting and worth the visit.
