My time in Uruguay has been all too short, mostly because I was ill for the majority of the trip. If Ben Bernanke were a physician, he surely would have described my bug as ‘transitory,’ though it proved to be anything but…
This evening, I’m heading out once again to Chile where I’ll be investigating some -very- promising leads on agricultural property. Before I depart, however, I wanted to provide a bit of insight into Uruguay.
As I mentioned in yesterday’s letter, I did live here in Uruguay briefly a couple of years ago. I liked the country then, and I like it even more now. It’s a lovely place– scenic, clean, and very peaceful.
The lifestyle is easy and low stress, and with such close proximity to more exciting places like Brazil and Buenos Aires, the slow way of life is an easy compromise for many people.
