Again apologies about the random photo there isnt one for Salto.
On my lst blog, I mentioned how we going to be sampling some Uruguian night life. That was on Thursday night when we went out. The nightclubs here do not get going until past midnight so we were having a few drinks in the hotel before we headed out. These few drinks ended up being in Liz and my room because we had been walking around the city until late and were slow in getting ready and so everyone crashed our room. We then headed out to the club across the road, this was around 11pm so we were early considering the usual times people go out. The club was ok, we were a bit of the main attraction being forigeners, Liz kept had having her hair stroked as she is blonde. The men here, by the way, are not that attractive - they still think the long haired greasey look is a good look which it really isnt. It was a fun night anyway.
Yesterday, we had a day another day in Montevideo. We all got up late considering the late night the night before. I went and as awful as it may sound had a Maccy D's for lunch. This is how much I'm not enjoying the food as the Maccy D's tasted so good and it felt like I was eating proper food which obviously it's not. I visited the Cathedral but then headed back to my room. At 3pm we went to the mall which was fine, it was a mall. Unfortunately, I have a god awful cold to content with which came out really badly yesterday. So at the Mall, I basically ate, bought food and had a really nice cup of tea. Some people went to the cinema but I decided to have an early night as my cold was making me feel ill. So I went to sleep at half 7.
This morning we had to get up early to get the bus to Salto. The bus journey took forever, it took 8 hours as the bus basically stopped every 20 miles. The journey apparently usually only takes 6 hours. As we were all starving we went for lunch and now have time to just wonder round the town. Salto is famous for it's hot springs and spas but there is not time today.
I think tomorrow I will treat myself to a massage as in the evening we have to get the night bus to the Iguassu Falls which I'm really looking forward to. To be honest,Â I havent been that enthralled by Uruguay so am ready to hit Brazil.
That's all my news for now,
Hope you are all well,
