I've safely arrived in Uruguay.

I checked the weather before I came. Sunny all week! No need for an umbrella!

It's been raining on and off all day.

Sone observations:
Architecturally, it's mainly 1970s tower blocks lined up facing the sea with palm trees for greenery. It reminds me a bit of the south of France, although the buildings are a bit more Californiaish to look at.
Traffic signs seem to be only advisory, but fortunately there aren't unbearable numbers of cars on the road.
Wifi coverage is good city-wide.
There are restaurants that serve only meat. We ate at one. I don't know what meat it was, but it was good. The vegetarian liked it too.
If there are laws about having to clean up after your dog, they're not enforced.
There are government buildings with next to no security. Soldiers on a break buy apples at the market. This is not a country with a terrorist problem.
The flag of the Broad Front political party (which adorns many buildings at the moment as there's an election coming) is the same as the flag of Russia but upside-down.

A bird dropped a message on my jacket. I only brought the one jacket, so I'm now having to try to wash it out. Somewhat presciently, this sign is on a club round the corner from the hotel.

So far, it's all been good people with interesting things to say. I'm looking forward to more of the same for the rest of my stay here.
