I am starting with Uruguay in South America. It seems to be quite a pleasant place to visit and live. Uruguay is South of Brazil and Argentina borders it from the west and south. The Atlantic Ocean borders it from the East. It has been called the Switzerland of America. Uruguay has been heavily influence by European culture and is a democratic country.
The cost of living is low and the beaches are beautiful. The country is clean and has good water and sanitation. According to all I have read, Uruguay is a little known gen of the world though, has become more noticed. The people are very nice and the food is excellent. Uruguay absolutely loves beef and other meats in their diet and restaurants. There is beautiful art and culture throughout the country.
The climate is wonderful. In the winter months which is our summer months here in the US, the temperatures are generally in the fifties. In the summer which is of course our winter here, the temperatures generally run in the seventies.
Uruguay places great importance on education. The kids start school at age 4 and attend school for 14 years. The whole country is completely digitalized in the 21st century in fact, the country digitalized their phone systems throughout by the 1990’s and their infrastructure is completely modernized even according to US standards. The population is somewhere around 3.3 million people with 1 million living in Montevideo. This country is quite the jewel if I say so myself.
Quite honestly, if one day I am able, I would love to vacation in Uruguay. According to what I’ve read, Uruguay is a very safe country and enjoyable for everyone who lives there and visits. Montevideo is the largest city and capital and the people take great pride in their city and country. I also love the design of Uruguay’s flag. I know that is probably not important to most people however; I believe their flag represents their culture in many ways from just the impression I have gotten from touring Uruguay via the internet. It would be quite nice to visit or even retire in Uruguay. I could continue extolling the virtues of Uruguay but, I must move on to other things. I have greatly enjoyed my tour of Uruguay and spent too much time sightseeing electronically. When you rest, sleep well my friends. ~b
