So on my trip to South America, I decided to spend a day in Montevideo, Uruguay. The entire time, I have been mispronouncing the name (what else is new 🤐). The correct pronunciation is [MON] + [TI] + [VI] + [DAY] + [OH]. Anywho, as I kept working on my pronunciation, I decided to explore and learn the history of the city for several hours.

Sights in Montevideo

Montevideo is the capital of Uruguay with the center being the Plaza de la Independencia. It is a small walkable city surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean (Montevideo Bay). On this trip, I was not able to walk as much due to the weather. Anywho, I was able to get a glimpse of the city before heading back to my hotel.After exploring, it was time to eat and warm up lol. I had one of the best lamb chops.My favorite and what gave me so much pleasure was the wine tasting at the airport during my departure. It was free! I had such a wonderful time tasting wine while waiting for my flightAfter the wine tasting and purchasing a bottle, it was time to head to Santiago, Chile. Chau!
