So, it's a good job that the archatecture ( that really doesn't look right, but oh well I'm too old for spelling bees anyway !!!! ) of this city isn't up to B.A's standard because if you take your eyes off the pavement for more than a few seconds you're likely to step into a steaming mound of doggy doo !!! I've never been in a city that has so many turds lying around the place, some of them in fact are that incredible white colour that only old poo gets, infact if you look in the lonely planet you will probably find some of the older more interesting ones under sights and things to see when visiting Montie's video!!!!!! Also the city seems to be the home of more tramps and homeless people than any other and probably linked to this fact , smells pretty strongly of piss!!!!! All that said however it's not too bad a city, and in the last couple of days I can safely say we've walked around all of it, not all on purpose but the old SAT NAV which was playing up in Buenos is still to get used to South America!!!!
We booked into a real crumbling hostel, the hostel Nuevo Ideal, which the L.
We spent our time in Montevideo walking the streets ( no not in that way ) and must have trodden 25 km worth of pavement around the city until we decided there wasn't really that much to see and found a beach to lie on.
So you've got some good beaches, a nice walk, crumbling graffitied walls, lots of poo and tramps, millions of banks that won't let you use them ( and there was us thinking VISA was international and that HSBC was the world's favourite bank PAH ) and a nice big smell of wee!!! It was fun though and I had a cracking Hamburger!!!!!
Tomorrow we're off for the proper beach, we've decided not to bother with Punta Del este as it's Easter and going to be packed, and anyway looks kind of rubbish in the photo and instead are heading further along the coast to a little town called La Paloma on a peninsular with beaches on all sides, Ria can't wait, after all she is a beach babe and it's been far to long since our last little holiday within the holiday!!!!!!!POOP POOP POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP HONK HONK HONK PARP PAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
