There are two Paul produced videos in this blog post for your viewing pleasure further down this list.

Our tour guide, Juan, told us many stories about the history of Montevideo including that, at one time, people gathered to collect water from this beautiful cherub decorated fountain. Click any photo to expand.

Below is another short video produced by Paul. Highlights include dreamy street music and bus music, biking on the Rambla, strikingly monumental tombstones, Atlantida beach and more.

Leo was so nice to drive us to Atlantida beach about an hour away from Montevideo. Now I'm starting to want to explore more of the coast. This coming weekend we are going to Colonia.

In this culture, people take long relaxing lunches or siestas after work during the hot afternoons. By evening many are out by the water enjoying the beaches and dramatic sunset.

Carnival is the entire month of February. We went to the Palco Desfile Llamadas (Parade of Calls) where we heard a lot of drumming. I could really feel the life enhancing vibration of the drums reverberating on the narrow streets. After the four hour parade people might be dining out until 2:00 a.m. Restaurants start to get busy around 9:00 or 10:00 p.m. when restaurants are closing in Vermont. Paul and I still like to eat early then wander out in the evening for the sunset.

Paul spotted this flyer on a tree: Pasamos Tus Videos for video transfer or digitizing. Some of you have noticed that we are in Montevideo easily changed to MonteVIDEOSyncracies.

After Paul's employee left, friends have stepped up to the plate to help out with the non-remote part of VIDEOSyncracies. He's been been teaching video transfer via zoom from our Airbnb in MonteVIDEOSyncracies.

Thank you friends. It takes a village for us to experience the drama of world exploration and run a business at the same time.

Frequently we have been biking to Playa Ramirez. Paul has increased his backstrokes from 100 to 180 so far. He likes to relax on the beach for a minute of air drying before biking back to our Airbnb. I like to relax on the beach the entire time he is backstroking

Tuesday morning we decided it was time for a little variation and went to the Rodo Park and garden across from Playa Ramirez.

We're planning some bus adventures to explore more neighborhoods, parks, and beaches. Stay tuned.

In the meantime we will appreciate stumbling upon many interesting sights that sometimes remind us of our family and friends. The beautiful sunset is wherever you are in the world.
