So I’ve been beaching it at Montevideo, Uruguay for the past couple of days! This was a random weekend away from Buenos Aires in which we spent most of our time lounging on the beach and swimming in the really warm water (and generally just enjoying ourselves). Our hotel was in fact pretty much on the beach;about a two minute walk from it, really. As someone who loves swimming, the water and lot’s of sand, I was pretty content with spending most of my time in Montevideo on the beach (or eating, because nothing beats stuffing your face with great food). I have a bit of a confession: I think I may like Montevideo a bit more than I like Buenos Aires… it might have to do with the fact that the people of Montevideo are a bit more chill (take a stab at why that may be) and that it just generally feels more safe (as in, you don’t feel like you’re going to be robbed while walking down the street to get a coke). Then again, maybe I feel this way because I love warm weather and beach life in general. But I’ve been thinking: if I have the opportunity to go to Uruguay again in the future, I definitely want to stay for much longer than a weekend. Deuces homies, love you Montevideo!
