There wasn't much to say about Montevideo Uruguay, Susan and I were a bit tired and a lot of the city just looked either similar to Brazil or Buenos Aires and/or there weren't a whole lot of grand and interesting things that the guide or the city really came a crossed to us.

There were a couple of nice viewpoints and we got some decent photos on the tour and probably the coolest sight of the day was an old government building all made of marble mostly.

Once we got back to the ship I had more fun after we had eaten and exchanged a bit of money for more pesos for this country.

We walked just outside the pier into the market area and did a bit of browsing and met a nice man and his family who were kind of pan handlers. Susan found a great Matte set for cheap there and we even almost purchased a handmade sheepskin leather rug for 70 bucks US but we would have had to go back to the boat to get our money which deemed time pressing for the boat left in 30 . . .

We departed from the ship with two new friends (Enrique and Marina from Brazil) we met at a Honeymooner/Anniversary party and left the ship about 10:15 AM.

Most of the people on excursions left the ship at 7:15 to catch a two hour bus to get to the beautiful countryside parks and whatnot.. but we saved a ton of dough by walking around in this safe portside town. Most excursions here were 120 and above in price.

We walked around and spoke with the people who worked at the End Of The World train excursion and found that we could do the same thing that the other people on the boat were doing but for only 35 dollars for two. We continued walking around town glancing in stores mostly and also took many great photos from around the hillside overlooking our ship docked and much more.

We reached our first destination which was an abandoned jail and now museum. At this point I finally threw out my paper cup with my morning tea which screamed American Tourist and we enjoyed a pretty . . . Read More..

We miserably woke up at 7:30 ish and it was dark and we didn't want to meet up for our early excursion to the Sugar loaf Mountain. The ship had you meet in the large Theater to get your assigned cattle bus number for your stereotypical expensive drive through town to get your candid smiley photo in front of the sights.. smell any pessimism and sarcasm here?

I know it is a safe excursion for sure. But I had my doubts you get what you pay for with some of these. Most of the people paid for the "Best of Rio", that hit up the Corcovado (Christ The Redeemer Statue), The Sugar Loaf View as well as got a Brazillian lunch and tour of the Cathedral.

Susan and our tour group first got to the Cathedral fully modern and made of concrete and it was so huge and apparently it holds like 5000 people or more. It was pyramid shaped and had the most beautiful stained glass and a huge cross at the top. I took some pictures and videos of this and took a picture of our new friends from New . . . Read More..

When we arrived to our hotel in Sau Paulo, we had so much fun checking out the modern Murombi rooms and the amenities we had. We were tired, exhausted and gross feeling from the lack of showers. But we got a great Brazilian/Italian meal and I had a few beers for about 30 Brazilian.

We wandered around this safe World Trade Center for a while and took a bunch of pictures.

The weather outside was absolutely fantastic with zero humidity and great sunshine.

We took a two hour nap and eventually woke up seeking more food, but to no avail we could not find anything open in the WTC. So we had to pay about 100 bucks to eat inside the Hilton. It was decent food. But absolutely fantastic service and totally relaxing atmosphere.

That night at about Midnight we overheard a noise coming from a wedding down below and it started right at midnight. We were a bit worried that in Brazil, the weddings start at midnight and last all night with that racket, but it eventually ended. The building . . . Read More..
