Montevideo, Uruguay | photoreport
Uruguay wanted to visit for a long time and all attempts to persuade me not to go to nothing lead .
Yes, in Uruguay not something that that is worth coming here just for tourism purposes . I'm rooting for this team in football since 1998, when he was the World Cup in France.
It is the only country in South America , in which I wanted to visit and sincerely regretted.
[See my new travel to Argentina]
After landing at the airport of Carrasco , you will not see some unfamiliar landscapes. A feeling that you have landed somewhere near Moscow - plain and lots of trees in the background. One difference is that in February we have -20 , and then 25 and there is a feeling that you just changed the weather.
Montevideo - quite large and modern city . Since Uruguayans are descended from Spanish settlers , then save them as features in appearance, and in architecture.
City reminds any Spanish city . I was just in Barcelona, so I can say that there are similarities .
Most enjoyable was to see people's faces. After Chile, where the population does not look very standard you get literally in Europe. Knowingly Uruguay called the South American Switzerland.
Girls dressed stylish man in a blue shirt , as if it were a city businessman . Old people look too good and very nice people and their eyes are very clear and literally glow .
Maybe I really lost touch during their stay in Chile of European appearance, but once you relax in Uruguay . People will not hurry , many handy thermos and a wooden cup with a mate . I do not know how well you can , but they drink it, and each shares with its neighbor . A feeling that they convey a piece of cake to each other and people are happy to eat it . But this is the usual grass !
This is the main area of Montevideo
And now a few photos for football fans . You may not read and do not look unnecessarily for most people , this information is useless and meaningless.
Stadium Team Defensor Sporting. Not allowed to go inside because there was organized playground, at school and go into the stands was problematic.
And this is all the photos , but the other team. Uruguayan Liverpool (FC Liverpool Uruguay), sister of the English club , located at Estadio Belvedere. At first , I thought that the stadium will be at least a little normal , but it was not there . This is not a stadium , and just pathetic . Yes , the grass is there, but the rostrum ... In my own playing Schatura team Division 3 ( East). So it will be better stadium , and then the team plays in the first division .
Fans of the team have :)
