We’re building a second structure next to the cabin in Punta del Diablo, Uruguay. Originally the place was just for summer vacations and weekends but this year my ex and younger kid will be spending the winter here so they needed space to work which wasn’t the living room.

The new structure will have a big deck with ocean view and in classic Uruguayan hippy beach town eclectic style be a dome. I’ll post more pictures as the construction goes forward.

Are you doing some of the building yourself?

It’s funny that you don’t know much about Uruguay from a European perspective because it’s very European. In fact it has it’s own elected members of the Italian parliament and a majority of the population has EU citizenship.

When Spanish and Italian elections happen all the political parties from Spain and Italy have offices, rallies, signs, voting drives, etc.... people of course vote for the local Uruguayan government as well.

Uruguay is like a Nordic political system with mostly people from Southern Europe located in South America. It’s is by far the most secular country in the Western Hemisphere. Nobody knows much about it other than Uruguayans are in obsessed with fútbol.

Until the 1950’s it was a major destination for immigrants but then the Latin American economic crises hit and there was a dictatorship in the 70’s and 80’s. Since the last economic crisis in 2002 the country has steadily become more wealthy again and now is receiving new waves of immigrants.

I should write up some posts about Uruguay beyond just sending pictures of the ocean, sunsets, and mate.

@memo,

Don't worry, Uruguay is not tropical at all. It is too far south. It is considered subtropical. In Montevideo (which is the capital), temperature will probably vary between low 9ºC (48ºF) during Winter and high 22ºC (72ºF) in the Summer (or so tells me Wikipedia, which is my source for these values). It is much colder than Rio.
