Sorry to say, but Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay, isn’t really charming. We expected something like a smaller and more quiet version of Buenos Aires, but it appeared like a crash between Colonia del Sacramento and “Ostblock”.  There would have been quite a potential considering all the nice historical buildings, but plenty of the newer buildings simply suck and the older ones with nice architecture are often not well maintained. At least I had the chance to eat one of those famous uruguayan steak sandwiches (that make your cholesterol-level skyrocket), together with a typical uruguayan beer (even if “Zillertal” doesn’t seem like a typical uruguayan name). Overall, it was ok that we didn’t plan too much time in this town…
