Uruguay - Mercedes

28 °C

We were chatting to a local in Montevideo who was from Mercedes who asked us, why are you going there??

Partly because it sounded good and also because it was conveniently right next to Gualeguaychu (our next stop to check out Carnival, Argentinian style). I don't think there was a hostel but we found a guesthouse in the town centre. It was hot, the fan was screaming loud and it seemed like it was about to fly off the roof and slice us but it was a bargain and run by a super old lady.

It was a nice town to see, relaxed, no tourists, a river/beach where everyone seemed to hang out, play soccer, ride their motorbike and drink mate. We went to check out some ruins, saw a dinosour museum and ate a monster Chivito (steak, bacon, eggs, cheese, olives, veg and chips).

A nice place to chill out, next up back across to Argentina...
