The capital of Uruguay . Aproximately , 1 000 000 people . Montevideo is small , but its really nice . There are kilometers and kilometers of coast and small downtown . To Montevideo , I got from Buenos Aires , by ferry to Colonia . After that , I took a bus to Montevideo , 3 hours . I got at night . Ricardo , my host , picked me up from Bus Station . He was 60 years old , very intelligent , good talk , very polite . He has been traveling around Europe and Spain ! He knows that places better than me !!
With Ricardo was staying Rachid , a French guy . We were living , two blocks far from the coast . The coast in Montevideo , its great ! The weather wasnt the best at that time , little bit rainy and windy . My routine , in the morning , I usually have lunch and I was going for a walk around the coast or downtown . At night , we usually had dinner with Ricardo . When Ricardo had free time , he guided us around , for a beers , around downtown . We visited a museum , which paintings were great . It was cubism and very interesting ! We went to the port to have lunch ! An amazing barbecue !! They called Asado !!
Asado was really good . Many different meats !! All of them yummy !! After that , we went for a walk and have coffee in a theater . Montevideo is quite and nice . It looks like Buenos Aires , but its smaller . There are many second hand bookshops , as everywhere in South America .
I visited Centenario Stadium, , just a day after the game , Peñarol vs Nacional . A special game !! Teams from the same city !! I did for free !! I went inside without asking anyone . Once , I took pictures , the girl told me that I had to pay . I said sorry , sometimes , its better say sorry than ask for permission !! . I made friends around . People . who were cleaning the Stadium , let me staying there and taking pictures . I also enjoyed dinners in Montevideo , with Ricardo and his friends . One day , I made Spanish omelette . We had them with wine and cheese . Robin made dessert and rachil also cooked a great French dish ! It was really nice dinner !!
