Pocitos is a trendy seaside district in Montevideo. I must say that while living in Montevideo I didn’t really visit many different parts of the city, but Pocitos was one I did enjoy. The rest of the time I was either studying (in college or at home) or watching the football, which was in the district just 20 minutes walk from my place.
Pocitos has an amazing seafront promenade, which on a summer night seemed amazing.
It was also the nearest beach to my flat.

Wesley from Hong Kong was my good mate for a few days in Montevideo. We ate together and saw round the city together.

I had to go to Pocitos to visit the British Embassy, it was on a quiet street away from the beach area.

My flat mate’s name is Ruben Dario Funai, he is from Argentina. But here in Uruguay, I found a Ruben Dario Plaza, he’s named after a poet or an artist apparently. And that, for Pocitos was that…
