But, as someone once said, "A fool can put on his coat better than a wise man can put it on for him." ---- Thomas Sowell

Dear Folks,

As already mentioned, La Papoñita is treating us well, so we will be there again this week at 14:00 (2 pm) on Sunday. The weather is supposed to be better, with no rain in the forecast, so venture out and join us.

Other topics include:

1. The Mercado Agricola opened on June 29. The old building was gutted, and 107 new stalls have now opened for business. In addition to enjoying the reportedly fantastic old and now completely renovated building, you can purchase all manner of delicious items at the various places, or sit and drink coffee or whatever and enjoy the environment. It is located near the Parliament at Jose L Terra 2220 between José de Amezaga and Martin Garcia, and is open between 8 and 22 (8 am to 10 pm). Check out the Observador newspaper website for a video.

2. About Eyes:

a) If you need new glasses or contacts or anything to do with your eyes, the recommended place to go, not only because it is much cheaper than other places, is

Dirección: Juan Benito Blanco 967, MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay
Teléfono: 598 2 708 2432

b) Doctors from Cuba run and staff an Eye Surgery hospital in Colón called St. Bois, and have done so for years.
They offer surgeries that are otherwise not available in Uruguay, and are much appreciated

3.Last baking class: Saturday, July 13th, at 14:00 (2 pm). Contact durandetto (at) if you want to take part.

4. A Long-Term Rental in Montevideo is still being sought, and time is really getting short, since it is needed by July 31. Last week, the hope was to find a 3 bedroom place with a fenced yard, but time pressure means that something else would be acceptable. Maybe 2 bedrooms with a garage--because 2 bedrooms is more common that 3 bedrooms. The main point is that a place is needed that is large enough for two people and a dog and all the household goods from the container arriving at the end of July. The seeker is wanting to stay there until a suitable place to buy has been found. So please help--be creative!

5. Wintertime is a good time to read, and there are plenty of new books in our UIE Book Exchange: Today's listings include 3 mysteries:

Edwardson, Åke, Sun and Shadow
Fossum, Karin, The Caller
Ingolfsson, Viktor Arnar, The Flatey Enigma &
Stine, R.L., Goosebumps: Night of the Living Dummy

You can borrow FOR FREE any of these or the earlier listed books (Uruguay Info Exchange--19.5.2013 Bulletin and click on the link)

If you have any books you no longer want and are willing to donate, bring them on any Sunday. Currently, all of the titles are in English, but, of course, books in any language will be gratefully accepted.

Cheers, Marita
