Notes on the Geography of Uruguay: Montevideo: Pocitos to Carrasco: Photo 1
We're on the south coast, just east of the Ciudad Vieja. Here, facing the water, is the headquarters of Mercosur, the organization linking the economies of Uruguay and its neighbors. Odd home for a bureaucracy, but when opened in 1909 this was the Casino Parque hotel. The city took it over in 1914 and enlarged it in 1938. Mercosur wasn't born until the 1990s.
