Photographer's Note

Once a week, on Tuesday mornings, the tallest building in Ururguay opens its observation lounge up to the public. The Antel Communications building
(Torre Antel) is only 12 years old, and is among the few truly modern buildings in the capital city of Montevideo. As we were there on a Tuesday - our first day in Uruguay and only day in Montevideo - we decided to head up for a look around.

The tour itself was awkward, as our poor Spanish and the guide's non-existent English made communication impossible, but the view itself was stunning. In this shot, you can see much of Montevideo's Old Town, heading toward the harbor. It is reflected in the windows of Torre Antel itself. The tall building at far left is the Palacio Salvo, at one point the tallest building in all South America.

Much of Montevideo's Old Town is in need of refurbishment, and it is interspersed with more modern, blocky office buildings and apartments, but it is a lovely place to walk around, even on a cool winter day with few other tourists.
