Montevideo is known as a green city, with its streets full of trees, flowerbeds and lawns, the numerous squares and large parks distributed in the Uruguayan capital. In our trip we dedicate a daylight all over the city, in front of the whole routine that we live, we wanted to make a different day, watching a little routine on people in the parks and the opportunity to enjoy the flora and fauna that soothes the mind.
After visiting the Centenario Stadium we continue to Pocitos, one of the charming neighborhoods of the city. As I said, our focus was walking calmly and contemplate what was around us. We took a bus on the side of the stadium (line 174). We went down well ahead of our target, which was the Parque Rodo and continued walking. In every street there was a surprise, tunnels formed by the trees, the elderly couples (always elegant), young people with their unique styles, cafes, restaurants and numerous shops spread around the neighborhood.
Then we arrived at Punta Carretas Shopping. We ate in the “Cafeteria Carrera”, with good food and fair price.
We continued the journey through the neighborhood until the Rambla. On the way we took many pictures and rest on the leaves of the trees. The cool breeze mingled with the warmth of sunny day, making our cozy walk. After one hour we arrived at one of the many sides of the Parque Rodó. The park comprises an area 43 hectares. The movement was small, because it was a weekday (Tuesday), perfect for dating in stools and take good photos.
After walking the rest time arrived
We spent the rest of the afternoon wandering around the site, resting the mind and finished the day with a delicious chorizo, a typical sandwich from Uruguay. We went back to the Che Lagarto Hostel by bus (20 min) and we said goodbye to the staff.
