Asunto: Reflections on my trip to Uruguay

Hola Margo

I hope you are well. I just wanted to send a message to all of you at La Herradura and thank you again for your hospitality during my attendance at the school. Please thank Matias, Mirabel and Juan for me – I really enjoyed their lessons. Also, the trips were a great way of meeting and socialising with new people especially as I was travelling alone.

Within two days of my return to the UK I was waylaid with a bad cold and a nasty cough (probably picked something up on the long flight home) so am only now beginning to feel somewhat better. However, my time in Montevideo and Colonia allowed me to slow down and appreciate the more relaxed lifestyle I encountered and to de-stress. I do think that Uruguay lived up to my expectations and I would like to see more of the country. However, it is a long way to travel and I’m somewhat mindful of the current climate change concerns and my carbon footprint. (How long does it take by boat? he says, jokingly.)

There were still things I didn’t get around to seeing in Montevideo but I think I fitted in quite a lot while, at the same time, trying to just ‘chill’ and live in Montevideo for three weeks. On the final Saturday I walked all the way to Plaza Independencia. I went into that glorious bookshop the other side of the plaza – librería Más Puro Verso – and had lunch upstairs in the restaurant. I was walking back down Avenida 18 de Julio at about 2.30 in the afternoon and noticed that most of the shops were closed – is this normal in Uruguay? It seems strange to a northern European where the shops always appear to be open.

On my last day (Sunday) I spent some time in Parque Rodo – it was a lovely, sunny day and it was nice to see the local people with their friends and family enjoying their leisure time.

I’ve started to look for a Spanish course here in the UK as I really  want to build on what I achieved at La Herradura and the confidence I had to use my Spanish in Montevideo. However, one course I found which would be the right level for me clashes with my work so I’ll carry on looking.
