Fernanda, an excellent local guide and the daughter of my homestay family (lucky me!) puts together tours for the school, at least two a week that are free for the students.
We were on our way to the well-known Mercado Agricola which looked like a train station and had both local and mall-type enterprises, and popular food and drink spots.
We are in front of the Palacio Legislativo where the Parliment meets. The building was inaugurated on August 25th, 1925 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Uruguay’s Declaration of Independence from Spain.
