The Club Hotel Casapueblo is reknowned throughout the Uruguayan world as a great place to watch the sunset. So I did.

Tour the museum and outlet shop for the art of the designer of Casapueblo, Carlos Páez Vilaró. I don't know the names of the pieces I saw, so I'll just show the pictures of some of more interesting pieces without comment:
|I kinda like this seahorsey.|
The sun had set and the whites of Casapueblo were fading.

|Wish I knew what kind of tree that is. I see them all over Uruguay and I think they look cool. Like a cellphone tower disguised as a tree rather than actually being a real tree.|

Anyway, I spent just the one night at Casapueblo. And that was about right. It was very expensive (almost $200 U.S. and it would've been $250 U.S. if I had stayed Wednesday night). It's isolated. The restaurant and the amenities don't warrant staying so far away from everywhere for more than the one night. But it was a GREAT place to spend one night. So, two last pictures posted out of chronological sequence because I lost my place. First, the Casapueblo at dusk, just as the white gleam is dirtying up.
