In the interest of full disclosure, we love Uruguay. This was our second trip to that lovely country, this time for nine weeks. The apartment building on Salto was conveniently located for us; eight blocks from Playa Ramirez and the Rambla, two blocks from the Intendencia, about three km from Ciudad Vieja, lots of restaurants and several supermercados, and best of all a feria des frutas y vegetales every Saturday on Salto just steps from our door. The kitchen is limited, I wanted to do so much more with the wonderful produce for sale at the feria, but we managed, and we now miss the opportunity to shop for our food in the community.
The apartment is basic, but we found it very workable. The staff, the porteros, the limpiadoras, the agents, are all the best; friendly, helpful, cheerful, and very forgiving of our poor Spanish.
