First view of Montevideo

plaza-independenciaFirst day of Spanish class. Lillián went with me in a taxi to show me how to get there. And to get a quick look at part of the city, too.

Kami’s photographs of Montevideo are terrific. And on this morning’s ride, I’d agree: “Lively but not overwhelming. And it kind of looked like the time has stopped there but at the same time it felt really modern. The sun was shining and the day was just gorgeous…”

The sun is quite intense (this is autumn, here) and it rains a lot more than in San Diego (anything would be more) so rather more humid. Sunscreen definitely required!

Looking forward to my own explorations and photographs in the next days and weeks.
