Heritage - Elias Regules Society

Heritage Day (Dia del Patrimonio) - dedicated to the Gaucho and rural traditions. A throng of people in the largest traditional society, Elias Regules in the north Carrasco area.

There was a lively dance by a Cerrillos amateur group.


The little city boys enjoy meeting their first horse!

Hello Horse

Within the Elias Regules field, there is a replica of an old rail station.

Forlorn corner

This is a lost corner in peripheral Montevideo (Coronel Raiz St. and Batlle & OrdoƱez Boulevard). The weeds have grown high. The current election campaign has helped aesthetics, by painting white a section of the old brick wall.

I doubt this corner was any different 50 years ago.
