El Barrio en Montevideo

The neighborhood we are staying in is called Punta Carretas which is east of the main financial area and the southern most tip of the city. Scott is here with a few other guys from the office and we all live in the same area so meet up after work pretty often for dinner and drinks.  Out with Joe, Mike and Rachelle

Had a great dinner at Da Pentella's an Italian Restaurant.

Fun night out playing darts at 503 Bar with Mike and Rachelle.  
A great Feira (market) that is held on Tuesday and Saturday in the neighborhood. They sell pretty much anything. (Clothes, shoes, jewelry, houseware goods and food) Really amazing and reasonable prices.
Can't get over the size of the sweet potatoes, delicious!

Nice area to read a book, people watch and catch some sun

Park located on the Rambla, in our neighborhood
THE BEACH....across the street from our place

Having a dog seems to be very popular in the city. You see a lot of dog walkers with anywhere from 5 - 8 dogs at a time.

Local recycle collector and their unique transportation
