"La larga noche de los museos"

>> Friday, December 10, 2010

Tonight, the recent tradition of "La larga noche de los museos" will take place in Montevideo. This is an even in which many of the museums (here, and also some in the interior) keep their doors open to the public through the night, with free entry. The idea is an international one that officially began in Berlin in 1997, and the idea is to get the community involved in the arts.
Here is a link to an article in El País about the event!

Well, we've had a lovely day in Atlántida, a small beach town about an hour or so from Montevideo. It was cloudy, but we still had a great time- and Mandy, Bev, and I all braved the cold water!

Off we go to conquer the museums!


One Semester Done

>> Thursday, December 9, 2010

Well, there it went in the blink of an eye!
We finished our finals last week and the semester for this group is officially closed. The rest of the group arrived back home safely yesterday, and I am missing them already!
We had a good last week which consisted of playing pool (our bi-weekly tradition), Diego and Andrea cooking Indian food for us, a night out dancing (literally- 2:00 am to 6:00 am), frantically finishing assignments, sleeping in the courtyard, and enjoying the hospitality of the Rodriguez family. We spent our last evening as a group on the Rambla, watching the symbolic sunset together.
