On Wednesday afternoon I left Uruguay... It's a 1h30 ride from Punta del Este to Montevideo, then a 45mn-flight to Buenos Aires, where there's a 7-hr wait, then a 13-hr flight to Madrid, 2 hrs in Madrid and at last a 2-hr flight to Paris... I'm actually posting from Buenos Aires's Airport!
Before we all leave Uruguay, here are a few more pictures: the sign Calle de los caballos (Horse street), on a beautiful, fragrant Eucalyptus tree, Montevideo seen from Pluna's tiny plane and finally, a Mafalda cartoon.
Mafalda, the terrifically funny and opinionated Argentine little girl created by Quino decades ago, still appears daily on the front page of the newspaper El Pais. Here's what she says:

There it goes again! They're always eating us!
Until when are we going to be the chickens of literature?I hope you enjoyed our trip to Uruguay.... If you want to visit this gorgeous country, whose people are welcoming and warm, make sure to send me an email and I'll give you some tips and addresses!
