Uruguay bound

Sol and I are leaving for Uruguay in just a few minutes so I need to write this blog fast. We went last year with our friend Flor to Colonia, and this time we are hitting up Montevideo and Punta del Este.

It's a fascinating little country and I'm looking forward to a few days of a relaxed pace after 5 weeks in the big, busy city. Fun fact: At just under 4 million residents, Uruguay is, by far, the smallest country to ever compete in and win the World Cup. The next smallest country to have won is Argentina, with 40 million! Uruguay won the first ever World Cup in 1930. They were also the host country that year.

I am going to try very hard to blog each day I'm gone, even if they're short!

Uruguay, here we come.
