Montevideo, Revisited

The Pocitos neighborhood of Montevideo evokes memories of the days when I believed that I could never leave New York City. Although I love the energy, and the endless availability of “stuff,” at the end of the day, I was happy to return to the peace and quiet of Atlantida. On the other hand, if you crave the action of a big city, but on a much smaller scale, the Pocitos is a perfect choice.

One thought on “Montevideo, Revisited”

  1. I think I worried Lisa into thinking I wanted to move back to a big city! I had such an enjoyable time that day, and other days wandering through Montevideo. I do still like getting my “city buzz”. But I love that home is our quiet, quirky, faded little seaside resort town of Atlántida. Montevideo is under an hour away on the Directo bus anytime I need a big city fix. Cost is less than 3 dollars for the 45 kilometer ride. Best of both worlds!
