Like most of you out there, I find that every easter I hear the same story. You know, the one about Jesus dying on the cross as a sacrifice and what an act of love it was. Nothing wrong with that, it's just that every single message I hear is just an echo of another message in another church service. But I promise you that the message today on my blogsite will be anything but drab, boring, traditional or overused.
Upon arriving at the hostel in Montevideo Saturday nite, I found out that they did not accept Argentine pesos as payment.....which is all that I had. All the currency exchange houses were closed so I called it a nite and made a resolved to get my money changed over to Uruguayan pesos the very next morning.
Sunday morning after enjoying the free breakfast that the hostel provides, I asked for directions to the nearest currency exchange house. I got given a map and given directions to the local shopping mall where I could get my Argentine pesos changed into the local currency. But the part where things got interesting is that there are actually two malls in Montevideo, one closer to the hostel and one further away.
