One thing caught my attention: English naturalist claimed to have slept in a large house that was about a hundred years old when he passed by the place. Rare, because for the early eighteenth century had hardly Uruguay population and ranches of the time were of adobe.
I stood in the center of the square, interested in how the place had changed little over those 400 years. I smiled when I remembered the newsprint happened José Moreno Carbonero, the painter's famous painting.
Was using a very short trip to Rio de Janeiro to follow one of my favorite pastimes: compare an old drawing with the current reality. In my hands was a copy of the engraving artist Beagle, Augustus Earle, performed in 1833.
