We are in one of the smallest countries in South America, but it is a country with one of the most stable economies in South America.
Montevideo is the capital city of Uruguay and it is our port today. The many grand old buildings are slowly being renovated.
We stayed close to the ship- it was cloudy and rainy in the morning and our Sunday Service was scheduled for late afternoon (it's never a good idea to chance being stranded in another part of the city when there is responsibility at hand).
We explored lots of artisan shops - I got Ed to pose with an unusual work of art - it combines two of his favorite things - notice the fork?
Speaking of eating - we didn't, but we had great fun in the Mercado del Puerto with all the wood-fired grills going full tilt!
Hmm - looks like our backyard Oktoberfest!
There is a handy chart so you can pick out your meat part.
Thank you, Montevideo, we will be back on Friday in the 3rd segment of the World Cruise.
