Important Information

When you're traveling in Uruguay and need a place to spend the night, make sure to ask for a Hotel. If you ask for a Motel, they will probably wonder where your female companion is. The length of time one stays in a Motel is typically measured in hours. If you don't know what I'm talking about yet, it probably doesn't matter.

Now that kind of situation is what I call a cross-cultural train wreck! Just think, there are some countries where a sign reading "Massage" doesn't carry any hidden meanings either.

Hope that things end up running smoother in the future!
