How are you doing? Greetings from Uruguay. I hope everything is going really well for you.
So this week Alice wrote:
"My family and I are considering moving to Uruguay. We’re devouring non fiction books, documentaries and whatnot about the country, but they mostly seem to portray the country in a positive light. What are some of the everyday annoyances or difficulties when it comes to living as an expat in Uruguay?"
Of course that made me want to write about some of the things major and trivial that I love about my day to day life in Uruguay ❤️🇺🇾 Here they are.
If you live in Uruguay or have visited, what would you include?
As we move into spring here in the southern hemisphere, please accept a little gift to celebrate 🎁 <<< It's the spring edition of our handy guide to reliable professionals (many who speak English) for those of us living in Uruguay and unique things to do.
If you're a regular reader I'm sure you're waiting for a little covid update 🦠 All good news coming out of Uruguay. We are down to 100-200 cases per day for the last 2 months and very very few deaths. Seventy-two per cent of the population is fully vaccinated and 24% already have a third shot. Eighty percent (yes four in five) of 12-19 years olds are also vaccinated, so if you’ve been concerned about this starting where you live, know that here we’ve not had adverse reactions. Remember we keep this page on Uruguay & the pandemic updated whenever there's significant news.
Until next time,
PS If you’re seriously considering Uruguay as a place that you might be interested in moving to and need some advice on what it’s really like, feel free to reach out to bag yourself a 50-minute, half day or full day session.
