After Antarctica, this was the first stop that wasn't the
Falklands - which doesn't really count.
I liked Uruguay probably most of all of the places in South America
I visited. Other places were hugely more spectacular and impressive,
but it was the kind of place you could feel comfortable. The people
we met were incredibly friendly, from the limited experience I had
of South America, Uruguay would be my home and then I'd travel to
other places knowing that I had a good place to go back to when all
the tourist stuff got too much.
