Grat! Just let me know what is better: the day before the Stones show or the day after

Hi Varilla!

I would say the day before the show. I guess that some people, like myself, will be travelling the next day, either home, or on to Rio!

Cheers,

Mr. J

Yes, i think it will be easier for everyone the day before the show, monday 15.
I´m planning to get a pub for us, take my band there and have some drinks, chat and jam for a while. Everyone of IORR who plays something is welcome to play. What do tou think? Good program?

Sounds perfect! Looking forward to it!

Hello there, I'm from Montevideo too and of course I'm in.
Whatever you need to know about the city and country just ask!

Happy New Year!
Cheers smileys with beer

Where are the best places to stay Alejandro?

I would´nt reccommend downtown. Pocitos or Punta Carretas area is my reccommendation. Full of hotels, restaurants, bars, near the Centenario. By the beach. Stay there.

Hi Stonesfan62, well Varilla is right. Pocitos and Punta Carretas, Puerto del Buceo are the best quarters to stay because the situation. Of cource, always depends of your budget.

La Rambla de Montevideo, river boardwalk is really beautiful in summer.

But you have to visit the old town by day (Ciudad Vieja) and the Centre Quarter.
It's very nice and you have lot of points of interest: Puerto de Montevideo, Mercado del Puerto, Teatro Solís, Plaza Independencia, Palacio Legislativo, Mercado Agrícola etc.

Bus is the main and unique public transport in Montevideo or you can take a taxi.
Bus price in cash $26 = less than 1 dollar. US$1 = $30 rounded.

Surely a taxi will not be expensive for you. Two rates: for days of week 6am-10pm and 10pm-6am (plus 25%). Saturdays until 3pm same as dow. Weekends or holidays same as night. At destination, make sure to see the number marked in the taximeter and the price's table.

You can exchange money all over the city without any problems in Casas de Cambio.(euros, dollars, pounds, pesos argentinos, reales brazil). If you want to exchange a good amount then ask for better rates of courtesy (sometimes it works).

Uruguaian people usually don't speak English very well. Easier with young people but is not a rule so with patience you can get you need. We're nice and helpfull cool smiley

Prices always includes taxes (IVA). No need to give tip (propina) to the taxi driver, just round the amount. For example: $108 give $120, $137 give $150.

Restaurants or bars: bad service nothing or round, good or average service %5 is ok, very good or excellent service %10

Currency

Coins -> $1, $2, $5, $10, $50 (very rare)
Paper -> $20, $50, $100, $500, $1000, $2000

Just to make an idea, to have good dinner you need nearly $500 (main course and drinks). But of course, it depends where and what you eat.

Another important info: there are no signs in english, just spanish.
Menues in spanish unless you go to a restaurant in a touristic zone (we mentioned here). But don't worry! Any doubt just ask to people.

We expect to join with you and all iorr friends the night before the show and before the show.

Cheers
Alejandro

Great Aralla, Cristal clear!
Do not change money in the airport, bus terminal or harbour. The rates there are VERY low. You´ll be able to exchang much better in Exchange houses (there are lots of them around the city or any Shopping Center) or even in restaurants, bars, hotels.

What else to say? Aralla has said it all!!! Bring swim suits since we are in mid summer: 25/30º

We are really very happy that the Stones are coming down here for once in a lifetime.
I think we are 3 or 4 Uruguayans in IORR. I was wondering if people in general know something about us, or even that we existed.

We have a population of 3.300.000 people. Very small. The longest distance from Montevideo is 600 kms. We have a very strong democracy, much stronger and traditional than most of Latin America.
Gentle place with gentle people. Our main resources come from cattle and agricultuire. Tourism is growing every day. We have these great beaches with super top Punta del Este as the big destiny. A very, very nice place, 1 hour from Montevideo.

Our national passion is football, really big. Its a miracle that such a small county is 2 times world champion and the top winner of America Cup (15 times). Our 2 main teams, Peñarol and Nacional were 8 times champions of the Southamerican touranament (the biggest and most prestigious of the continent) and 6 times World Champions. Practically everbody in Uruguay likes football and a derby in Centenario is a sight to be seen , unbelievable.

We come mainly from italian/spanish immigration although we have people from everywhere.

Its from Uruguay that came those guys who crashed in a plane in the Andes mountains and miraculously survived in the worst and most unhuman conditions after 72 days in the mountain. Considered dead, they had to get out by their own means in what is considered one of the most epic stories in manhood. There is a film done by Hollywood about this: ALIVE

I hope this is not to boring for everyone but inevitably i wanted to knoe if you know us!!

Beautiful country, nice and gentle people. I can totally relate to your feelings about the Stones playing in Uruguay, varilla. Porto Alegre is much closer (in spirit) to Montevideo than to Rio or São Paulo.

I saw a documentary about the president from Uruguay who lives on a small farm and doesn't care about formalities. What a guy!

If I'm not wrong, that's a kind of Argentinian ID. If you're a foreigner I think you can leave that space blank or fill it with zeros.

Yes, there was a box that had me listed as Argentine...when I put USA in there, the CUIT/CUIL box disappeared.
Thanks for the reply.

Can one of our fine members from Uruguay speak about a trip from Montevideo to San Paulo, please?

For example, flying? driving? Time? Expense? Hosing in San Paulo?

Sincere good Stones' karma to anyone who might help!
