Wordless Wednesday- Murals in Montevideo Uruguay


Montevideo, Uruguay
"Montevideo, Uruguay’s capital, is a major city along Montevideo Bay. It revolves around the Plaza de la Independencia, once home to a Spanish citadel. This plaza leads to Ciudad Vieja (the old town), with art deco buildings, colonial homes and landmarks including the towering Palacio Salvo and neoclassical performance hall SolĂ­s Theatre. " - Wikipedia


This was a professional photo - not mine- there were lots of wild parrots in the parks


Restaurants in the old city still displayed window advertising from the 1940's 
                              It was one of our favorite trips

The old city of Montevideo looked like a city of murals that were painted on many of the walls across town +
plus a few other street shots for

I loved this mural of the fish just painted on a building on the street. Too bad the car was in the way of the shot


she was in front of a restaurant or bakery

  2. What a neat experience! The last mural is so funny with the old man doing tricks with his scooter and the old lady doing a wheelie on the bicycle. Thanks for linking on Amanda's Books and More!
