October 22-24

One of my classmates is working on a PhD with a project in Uruguay to study their free and widely available system of mediation. I went with her to kick off her interviews.

Mi Familia! This is the scene every morning for breakfast. Sometimes other people have stopped by too. It’s a lively place here at mi casa and I’m having a lot of fun.

This was another especially fun and tasty lunch at this place where the chef here and the man who seemed to be the owner told me all about their offerings including that their chickens are happy, their vegetables freshly harvested, their pasta made on the spot.

This is a google maps shot of the Rambla. Most of the time it’s a sidewalk along a seawall but there is a little sand in this part.

People don’t come to Montevideo for the beach. If you want to go to the beach you go north including the hoity-toity Punta del Este where I’m going tomorrow.
