Museo Arte Precolombino Indigena

I went for a walk this morning to look for the ‘old town’ section of Montevideo. I’m not sure I found it.   I did find a lot of old buildings, though.   Couldn’t resist the kitty cat.   Notice anything similar in all these pictures?   Hardly any people.

The image … Continue reading MALBA

The pictures speak for themselves. These are some sketches by Goya. A close up of one of them is posted below. I was surprised when going through … Continue reading Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes
