Change Yourself…Change The World.

All Good Things Must Come To An End

Dear Uruguay,

You are a hidden gem in this world, and I have had some of the most fantastic three days of my life with you. I have never felt so in love with everything while walking your streets.
I will miss you. I will miss your merchants and markets. I will miss your sweet and kind people, who have gone above and beyond the past few days to make me feel so welcome. I will miss the kind old lady and her husband who are artists and gave me a montevideo magnet wrapped in a music sheet. I will miss the mercado puerto, by far the best part of Uruguay, where yesterday I dined on red wine, paella, and flan with dulce de leche and whipped cream, spending almost every penny I have… and so worth it. I will miss your amazingly cheap, delicious, and varied empanadas. I will miss lying in a bedroom with white sheets in your main city, lazily drawing love notes and imagining what my wedding will look like. I will miss your antique buildings, your artwork sprawled all over the streets, your ocean breeze, your chorizo (which is the best I have ever tasted anywhere), and all of your oriental stores. I will miss feeling utterly relaxed but inspired, tranquil yet thirsty for experience, creative, spendthrift, and daring in your world. I have made friends and relationships with many, many people in the places I´ve traveled to- but I have never been in a relationship WITH the place that I have traveled to. I feel as if you have become a close friend, a lover, a passionate union that I will forever look back on with much fondness. I dearly hope we can meet again someday.

And another large piece of me lays behind again in this place,
