First, some street scenes around my neighbourhood (the Cordon, which to me is one of the best neighbourhoods to live in: relatively quite safe, affordable, and becoming more hipster by the minute):
An interesting mix of architectural styles as you can see. And note the last pic: dude has a trophy display in his rooftop patio. I have a rooftop patio in The Abbey too, but not quite so elaborate, and without any of the hunting trophies.
Finally, here's a shot of the best place to buy coffee by far in the entire city:
El Carioca is actually a coffee wholesaler, but they have a storefront where they sell retail to people in the know. They have a ridiculous variety of coffee (especially by Uruguayan standards) of a much higher grade than anywhere else in town. The owner is incredibly knowledgeable, and insists on giving you free shots of espresso to try his different blends, served out of a $1000 machine. Next to the tobacconist, it's pretty well my favorite shopping excursion (and only about five blocks from The Abbey).
Anyways that's it for today!
