Washed ashore / caught



Within moments of my photographing this unusual sight,



the Prefectura arrived to remove it. I continued on my way with a bag of three occasionally flopping corvina a fisherman friend had just given me. Cleaning them was a mess: new respect for the people that make nice fillets available!




I will stop whinging about prices. For a moment, anyway.

Coconut oil for sale, Atlántida, Uruguay


Five years ago, edible coconut oil simply was not available in Uruguay. Couple years ago, you could find it in health -oriented stores. Now you can buy it in Tienda Inglesa.

I took this picture because it seemed appallingly expensive. Turns out that yes, you can get it cheaper on the USA, but you can also pay more.
