About 1 in 2000 persons in the world are from Uruguay. People that meet me are thus unlikely to have found a Uruguayan before and are curious about the place. The same thing happened to my friend Facundo Mémoli. He put this material together in 2003, which I have slightly updated over time.
In 1999 I bought a house in ruinous conditions and spent the weekends of the next two years repairing it. I learned to paint, prepare concrete, build brick walls and electrical installations, install windows, doors, carpets, counter tops and ceramic floors as well as welding. Of all this I am most proud of welding.
My children have had the good nature of contributing to the contents of this site.
