After postponing our departure twice (the first time due to Montevideo’s awesomeness and the second due to stormy weather), tomorrow morning we are loading up our steeds and heading east.

Our next destination is Punta Del Este (130km away).  We are a bit nervous – this will be our first “real” ride – i.e. the first time we’ve ridden with all our gear, electronics, kitchenware, tent, and guitar (yes, Kale couldn’t help himself and purchased a ¾ size nylon string).  Wish us luck 🙂

These past four weeks have been amazing.  The city is charming, the people warm, and the atmosphere calm, yet lively.  Below are a few photos (for more, check out our Montevideo Album).

Chau Montevideo!
