Old Montevideo

Montevideo was much quieter and much smaller than Buenos Aires, but a great place to relax. The city center, where we stayed, had a lot of colonial buildings, some falling apart, some wonderfully restored. The seaside was equally nice: we walked along the shore, looking at people fishing and kids playing in the water.

We found a strange fountain downtown, which fence had hundreds of locks. Locals told us that lovers were supposed to attach a lock and throw a coin in the fountain, for their love to stay forever blahblahblah. I´m obviously not superstitious but we happened to find a lock at the local mall and well, we locked ourselves… What, it was Valentines day after all!
