Capital of Uruguay Walk
• Walk on the Uruguayan capital of
It is strange that almost nothing about Uruguay, we do not know. There do not sell tours, he was not spoiled by the attention of Russian tourists, and yet it was one of the best countries in which I have been. A splendid country. Something similar to Cuba, but not so wild. There are good hotels, excellent restaurants, and most importantly - Montevideo, the capital, is home to almost all of its inhabitants (85% of the population)! The city, which delivers incredible aesthetic pleasure every square meter. Each of his beautiful house. It's a pity I can not draw, but it would have stayed in Uruguay for a couple of years to draw in Montevideo.
Even in Uruguay has an amazing president, José Alberto Mujica Cordano. Why surprising? See for yourself. Firstly, it is called 'the poorest president'. At Jose no bank accounts, no luxury homes, and almost all of his salary he gives to charity, leaving himself only $ 1,250 for life. Secondly, he legalized marijuana in the country, and has even been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize this year. As you have seen, to be happy in Uruguay do not need money.
I should not have underestimated the Uruguay is a beautiful country.
From Buenos Aires to fly only 50 minutes.
The beaches, golf courses. In Uruguay come to rest Brazilians and Argentines. It is believed that there is a great place for retirees.
The old center of Montevideo! City built the Spaniards, the country received independence in 1825.
Montevideo population slightly more than Omsk.
In places like the old town of Havana, the same old shabby houses.
Look, how lovely! It's a miracle.
In this case, the city is quite civilized and seemingly safe. At least, I walked everywhere, and no one even obliquely did not look at me.
Everywhere you look, everywhere well-preserved part of the past. Just the eyes rejoices.
Parking just marked lines on the sides of the road, there is no place in the division. Very correct decision.
Many of the buildings are abandoned.
The old car park is still in effect.
The central street
Of course, it is necessary to draw in Montevideo
The building of the port. Just lovely.
I walk down the street and suddenly I see: some crap worth. "Is to Montevideo got Don Story, with its skyscrapers?" - I thought.
It turns out, I saw this building already in Buenos Aires. The author of two nearly identical houses - Italian architect Mario Palant. Amazingly ugly buildings designed this Mario.
has shifted from the center to the mansion area where the rich lived.
Earlier in Montevideo was the tram. Unfortunately, it was removed and 1957, but in many places the rails were left.
The endless promenade.
In the heart of the tourists fed on the former market.
Brand Uruguayan "parizhada" that is roasted on the grill meat. Uruguayans argue with the Argentines, who tasty meat on the grill turns. I can say that I have obtained tastier.
The sidewalks in Montevideo pave huge granite slabs, both on Nevsky in St. Petersburg.
Sometimes the sidewalks are falling apart, as in Moscow
Graffiti on the walls here, as in Moscow, paint over the first got paint

Besides the fact that in Uruguay legalized marijuana, it is still possible to thump behind the wheel. Moreover, the state of intoxication can be a mitigating factor in the accident.
The locals do not break off and fry the meat on the street. Come with your family and let fry on the grill all there.
And this can happen right in the center of the city. Will make the board, kindle a fire on the historic cobblestones and let's toast.
Why be shy, to be sure, the city center
Montevideo - one of the best cities in which I was. Be sure to come here!
