Notes on the Geography of Uruguay: Montevideo: Pocitos to Carrasco: Photo 10
We've come over to the next bay, Buceo, or "diving," so-called because a ship sank here in 1752 and divers salvaged bits of it. The tallest building in the picture is the World Trade Center (every country needs one); its location hints at the city's eastward growth; so does Montevideo Shopping, the city's major mall, which adjoins the tower.
The foreground is part of the Montevideo Yacht Club. (Ambitious countries need one of them, too).
