Wayne and Colleen's Trip Around the World 2015 travel blog

A Fabulous Dinner!

Beef Tenderloin with Uruguayan roasted vegetables.

Candombe - upside down cake of carmelized apples and pears with vanilla...


Today we arrived in Montevideo on a warm, sunny, summer day after cloudy days in Houston and São Paulo, Brazil. We have already flown over 7,200 miles or almost a quarter of our trip around the world. We now can catch our breath with a three night stay before we head back to São Paulo to board our flight to Johannesburg on 2-11.

We arrived in the afternoon and headed out for a walk along the beach and for a couple of local Cerveza's. Dinner was the best though....the highlight of our trip. Couldn't resist sharing a few photos. We are staying at Cala Di Volpe which is a boutique hotel and we have a view of what looks like an ocean but is considered a river which flows into the Atlantic. We aren't in a tourist area but a Shereton is nearby along with an upscale 3 story mall. Having dinner in a local neighborhood was a treat. Good thing Colleen knows enough Spanish to get by.......this area doesn't appear to have many English speaking visitors so most of the locals we have encountered know little if any English.

We will see more of the city and local area the next two days.
