We can’t claim to be impartial about Uruguay’s capital—two IgoUgo editors call it home, after all—but SeenThat’s newest journal from the city is lovely no matter how you look at it. Three years after his first visit, he’s back for More Montevideo. And we could be imagining it, but we think he likes its classic sights even better this time around.

He certainly likes eating parrillada at the port, and he says that the Parque Rodo is “probably one of the most beautiful [parks] in South America.” He also whets our appetite for wandering the Ciudad Vieja, the Tres Cruces neighborhood, and the Rambla, a riverside promenade he deems “one of the best such constructions in the world,” even going so far as to say, “It surpasses anything I have seen along the Mediterranean Sea, be it Italy, Greece or my own country.”

The journal’s passionate and detailed entries leave us wanting even more Montevideo. And we hear the third time’s the charm—how about another visit, SeenThat?
