I'm a little bit "country"


Our friends were gracious enough to invite us out to their mini-hacienda out in the "country" this last weekend.

Their son stopped by our home on Sunday morning and drove us out from the city. This was (gasp!) our first time leaving Montevideo since arriving in Uruguay. Pretty sad, I know! :)

But, we are planning on doing a lot more traveling now that the weather has turned for the better (absolutely gorgeous).

Here are a couple of pics I snapped. Their "hacienda" sits very close (couple of kms) from the coast, in the southern part of Uruguay where the river meets the ocean....Near "piriapolis", about 1/2 hour from Punta del Este (i'm guesstimating here).
The last shot is a blurry snap that I took out of the moving car in at the end of the day in an attempt to capture the sunset. The pic, of course, doesn't really do it justice, but hopefully, using your imagination, you can appreciate how cool it was. :)

Would love to see the pictures mentioned, but maybe you forgot to post them...

yeah...unfortunately, this is one of the few times that it wasn't just due to me "forgetting" to post them.

it "seemed" like they were uploaded properly, and then they just didn't show up.

i had a similar problem on a previous post (user error?) and perhaps i'm hitting the free blog MB limit for fotos or something (?)

i'm going to look into this further later this evening...i don't really want to dump the older fotos to make room for the new as i think they add some value for people who haven't had a chance to visit themselves yet....
