Buenos Aires and Montevideo 2019
Fall in Buenos Aires and Montevideo
Buenos Aires and Montevideo lay across the Rio de la Plata from each other. Both share some history and geography — but each is distinct in its own way. Buenos Aires lives up to its reputation as the Paris of South America — grand boulevards lined by picturesque buildings for kilometers. Montevideo feels a bit like a smaller version, but is no less of a city and beguilingly interesting in its own right. Stretches of beaches, high rises and mid rises, and ever present people strolling, lounging, and chatting while sharing a cup (or 10) of yerba mate. Delicious coffee and food are scattered through out a city that I could (and did) stroll through for hours.
