So first off, the Uruguayans have pretty cool bills :

They're also rather proud of them, in spite of trading ~22 to the dollar.

The famous "time-holding nude chick giving some blond dude a chain splitting erection with spear" mural. The legend explains that the mural was made by the Municipal Arts&Crafts Shop in 1988. It looks it, especially if this were somewhere in say Ukraina.

So this is the port.

Ever seen aloe flower ?

Anyway, back to the river : very hard basalt rock in some places makes for some interesting shore.

One of the two foreground components of this picture are going to be repeated over the next few. What's your guess, orange tree or old car ?

ur-1-11

Yep, right you were. Was it hard ?

ur-1-12

The river gets mighty foggy in the morning.

Run of the mill collectivist indoctrination shit. Notice two things : one's the unsanctioned rendering of the teacher as a bird, which probably means exactly the same here as it did back home : whether it's a penguin or a parakeet, it's there to signify complete loss of contact with reality. A sucker, in other words. The other's this :

Notice the cocks ? The... collective cocks ? Well then.

I went and sought out the most destroyed sidewalk in all of Colonia for this shot. Victory is mine.

ur-1-16

That looks almost exactly like some sort of Ford Model B. The A's were actually assembled in Buenos Aires, I guess it's possible the B's were too. The (illegible) marking towards the back identifies it as "Victory" but that doesn't seem to translate to anything.

ur-1-17

I guess that means "Let desire win the war of possibility", is it ?

What's your guess, was this the prison or the treasury ?

They told him they were going to get new parts, they told him the bandage is to keep the rust out, but he knows he's not going anywhere ever again. He knows, and his headlights are sad :(

ur-1-23

This is the place where they keep motorcycles and bicycles.

ur-1-24

This is the place where they keep washing machines. Very organised sort of people.

ur-1-25

Ever seen one so happy ?
