Lovely day to have lunch with friends at the refurbished casino in Carrasco, the closest part of Montevideo for us suburbanites. Also a lovely neighborhood, a place I’d find desirable if I had to live in the city. (And wanted to spend a lot more than I do.)
After seeing this building empty for several years, it does my heart good to see it alive again.
Delicious meal, and we got the full 22% tax knocked off when I used my US Visa card, and paid in USD as priced on the menu, so no need to exchange to pesos. Sweet! The little things ….
Plus we got to see not one, but two, full-sized plastic horses. With lamps sticking out of their heads.
Tell me it gets any better than that.
