Photographer's Note

This will be my last shot from Uruguay before moving on to Argentina, which is fitting as it depicts the lovely restaurant where we ate dinner on our last night in Uruguay.

This is the interior of La Casa de Jorge Paez Vilaro, a small restaurant/art gallery located within Colonia's old town. As we were there in winter, there wasn't much activity at night; the restaurant, though lovely and with excellent food, remained empty save for us the entire night. This gave me a good opportunity to catch the gorgeous lighting and decor without any interruption (and despite posted 'no photography' signs - I couldn't resist!)

Between the rich stone walls, deep red tablecloths, bright spot lighting on tables and wall hangings, and the art and puppetry on the walls, the place was a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach. As I had to take furtive shots, I didn't quite get the chance to line things up the exact way I wanted, but I'm pleased with how this particular shot came out.

Tomorrow: on to Buenos Aires!
