Bit of Montevideo

View South America on St Martins's travel map.

So after sleeping pretty good in our first bed for a while, we had a couple of days to chill out, and spent them exploring Montevideos old town, which is pretty small, and easy to walk around. We walked around all the markets, the 'Mercado del Puerto'- which is a big building, filled with loads of grillhouses and musicians and stuff, which was nice.


We also saw the crypt of some guy who was obviously pretty important cause his urn was guarded by two of those soldiers who just stand still all day and try to keep a straight face. We also went to the beach, which was alright- except it took us nearly to hours to find a bus going back to the old town where we were staying which was a bit of a bummer. Got there in the end though. Montevideo is quite a nice place to walk around, theres loads of nice streets, plazas and buildings- as well as a seafront all the way the city (where we got addicted to taking photos of sunsets).



It is quite small though, and after two days we felt like we had seen it all, so got a bus to Colonia...
