First the pesos
Now onwards to our URU-gay:
Passing through Plaza Independencia on my way between errands I saw a sight!
Surrounding the masoleum of Uruguay's national hero
And the foot of his statue
Was some sort of gay education event
No scantily clad people celebrating their sexing. No obviously gay people at all. Just one AIDS tent, a bunch of craft tents roughly a quarter of which were selling grinders and other smoking accessories, and a total attendance on par with St. Paul's parish Kirchenfest in Highland, Illinois. Far fewer people than turn out for the weekly feria Tristan Narvaja were in the historic district's central plaza across from the Exective branch's office building for an event planers decided was important enough to warrant rainbow canopies.
From another plaza two blocks away. It's this colorful every day.
