Okay! Here are some photos that my Mom took in Vieja Ciudad (Old City) of Montevideo yesterday. We walked all over the cobblestone streets and saw some beautiful old buildings. My Dad says they are from the 18th and 19th century and a lot of them are in the Spanish Neo-Classical style. There is some renovation and restoration going on but most are in some form of disrepair.
This is Frederick and I am having fun learning about South America.
