15.06.2014 Bulletin

by Marita
(Montevideo, Uruguay)

Dear Folks


Can you say "fútbol"? It seems that, with the World Cup starting today in Brazil, it is the equivalent of "Father's Month" for most of the world, not "Father's Day". That event will be celebrated in the USA on Sunday, June 15th--giving fathers in the USA at least a day, because that country is about the only one that does not care a whole lot about fútbol.

So Father's Day or Fútbol Day or whatever, come Sunday at 14:00 (2 pm), we will gather in Montevideo at La Papoñita to discuss anything of interest. Sure, it's a restaurant, and you can eat all manner of different items, but if you don't want anything, that is fine, too. Just come and enjoy yourself.

Aside from fútbol, is anything else going on? Well, actually yes:

1. Free use of bicycles in Ciudad Vieja--A new system of bikes has been set up for use in Old Town from 7 am to 8 pm. There are 8 terminals and 100 bikes available. One is by Teatro Solis, one at the Mercado del Puerto, one an Plaza Zabala, one at the Republic bank, and 4 others. You need an STM card (otherwise used on the busses), and you can register at Alazaiber 1321. The first half hour is free--after that, the next half hour costs 11 pesos, the next 33 pesos, 2 to 3 hours cost 55 pesos, and up to 4 hours costs 74 pesos--which is the maximum allowed. It is allowed to bring the first to a terminal after half an hour, wait 5 minutes, and then get another....

2. Spanish resources--People are always asking about helpful resources for learning Spanish, so a couple that have been mentioned recently are

www.lightspeedspanish.co.uk

www.duolingo.com

and a telenovela type Spanish course with 50 half-hour parts of the story with exercises is at

3. A restaurant find--Katy's Restaurant, a Cuban restaurant on San Salvador 1644, esq. Minas, turned out to be a very pleasant place with a good atmosphere, and a menu that differs from those in most restaurants here in Montevideo.



Katy's Resturant


They offer meat, fish, pasta, salads, and salsas, as well as sinful desserts, and the portions are impressive, at prices that are reasonable for what they offer. The most expensive meat was 365 pesos. Thursday and Friday evenings, there is live music during the dinner hours. See the attached flyer for pictures of the place and more info.

4. German Company starting a Financial Services Center--BASF is opening a big center here to service all their business in central and south America. They will open their doors in November of this year, and add further departments until everything is up and running in 2016. The center will be located in the World Trade Center on Artigas, and will be headed by Berthold Ebner. BASF started the first such center in Berlin 7 years ago, and it has grown to have over 1,000 employees. A further such center is located in Asia. The center here is planned to have 320 employees. Uruguay was chosen because of its location, stability, and workforce. Those of you looking for employment may want to pursue this further.

5. Music--There are a number of interesting performances in the near future, as listed below.
