With a heavy head Alex woke up this morning. “Must be the result of last night’s drinking” he murmured as he shoved his duvet aside and walked to the bathroom. He spent more time than usual in the shower and used quite warm water with hope that the ache in his muscles will ease. “Must be the result of too much dancing” he thought. Alex knew the too much party and drinking lifestyle is not doing him any favour, still he went to the parties, drank, danced and occasionally had sex with the girls he met at the bar. Once he had thought that such life would give him pleasure as he did not have to take any responsibility and he can have as much fun as he wanted. He could not lie that he did not have any expectation from such lifestyle. He wanted happiness but did he really get it? “No” he spoke loudly in the shower. He knew he is a coward. He never managed to actually face himself in the mirror and fight his inner demons. He just did what his friends and colleagues did. He simply went with the flow. And he is still flowing.

He finished showering and get out of the bathroom with a towel draped in his lower body. The hangover still hung there and that pissed him off. “What a morning!” he thought “A massive hangover with body ache. Nice!”  After quickly dressing in a casual Capri and Topshop t-shirt he got out of his apartment. He lived in one of the busiest places in North London called Wood Green. He liked the area because it had all the amenities one can think of – cinema, shopping mall, supermarkets, gym, restaurants, etc. He wanted to lose himself amongst the crowd with hope that he might find some relief from the emptiness he feels deep inside. “What should I do today?” he asked himself while walking towards the tube station. Being Sunday afternoon the streets were bussing with people. Some were busy selling their products in the street market beside the co-operative bank , some were busy preaching the teachings of Jesus or Allah, couples were busy making out in public as if there is no tomorrow, singles were browsing shops and  families were out to do their weekly shopping. One Black guy was spreading leaflets and gave one to him. He politely took it considering that he would probably toss in the dustbin on his way to the restaurant. For some odd reason he wanted to read the leaflet. “A Sunday Market at the Famous Alexandra Palace Park Showcasing Local Produce and Crafts” read the headline. It has been ages he went to the park although it was only 20 minutes walk from where he lived. “OK, I will go to the park today and check out the market. It will be a good way to pass my Sunday and maybe will help get rid of the hangover” Alex decided. But first he needed a good cup of Cuppachino as he was extremely thirsty. He walked to the Costa coffee shop next to the tube station and bought a large Cuppachino takeaway and started walking towards the park.

There are plenty of tools and platforms on the Web that can be used for marketing, some of which may be too obvious but effective if well exploited. The most important factor to consider is capturing your target audience and offering them something that they value and make them dig further. The following are some of the technologies that can keep you one step ahead in expanding your market base.

Email

Email marketing is the key to digital marketing. You must, however, get permission from your users to email them so as to avoid spamming of your content. Send just the valuable content suited to capture the interest of the user. It takes more than one click of a few enticing words to close a sale. Email marketing is good because it will help you stay connected with the potential customers and prospects who would like further contact from you.

Use of the Search Engine

This involves search engine optimization (SEO) to get top-notch search listings for your content and paid search ads like the Google AdWords. Most users (including B2B buyers) use the search as part of their work. So these people need to see you when they are searching for what you are selling. For the search ads, you have to optimize your keywords, put offers, direct them to the websites you want them to find your product and track the people downstream if you integrate your Google AdWords data with your Google Analytics data and CRM; so that you know not just which ads are clicked on the most but which ads lead to the most opportunities and revenue. SEO doesn’t just involve technical enhancements, but also creating high-quality content which is ranked highly by Google.

Conversion Optimization

Conversion optimization is the practice of getting users who visit your website to engage them actively with tasks that you have set for them. These tasks include filling out forms so that you may end up with their email address. Statistically, 4% of people visiting an online ad fill out forms; use of conversion optimization can make it rise to 8%. Appetizing offers or marketing apps created by capable companies get conversion rates that are way higher. To more get users to your website, ensure you convert as many of them as possible.

Mobile

Most users open their mail with smartphones and soon most searches shall be done through mobile. All websites should, therefore, be mobile friendly. Very few websites are (33 percent). As a designer or online marketer, ensure your site is easy to read or use on a phone. If you do not, Google fines you with lower mobile search rankings. After making your site mobile friendly, your next step is now setting up mobile search advertising and other means of mobile marketing. To make a site compatible with your smartphone, use the responsive design. That will automatically resizes the website to fit the device which is being viewed. To see if your site is responsive, it automatically resizes itself depending on the resolution of your device.

A man’s home is his castle, and at every castle’s heart should be a throne. With this sentence alone, leaning towards exaggeration as it may seem, the reason why gamer’s love gaming chairs should become more or less apparent.

Even with that said some further exploration might be required, yes? Right then, let’s get into it. Here are three unassailably logical reasons why a gamers’ chair is nothing to play around with.

  1. Posture really matters

The issue of posture has been beaten into our collective consciousness since the early 90’s; when office-types began to manifest the adverse effects of long hours spent hunched over computers. It’s the exact same consideration that prompts gamers to love gaming chairs. It might be likened to the difference between flying coach and flying first class – yeah, you’ll get to your destination just as quickly either way, but, truth be told, that’s the only thing the two scenarios have in common.

  1. Greater gaming experience

Games have come a long way in terms of design, graphics, and the level of storytelling they employ. A major factor eliciting a gamer’s love of gaming chairs is simple; they allow for a more complete, more authentic, and more visceral immersion into the stunning world games are able to present us nowadays.

It wouldn’t quite seem right if you were to step into a spanking new Ferrari to find the seating is something you last saw in your grandma’s dining room, now, would it?

  1. Going the long haul

Have you ever been inside a big rig? Those massive eighteen–wheeler trucks favored for long–distance hauling? No? Well, neither have I to be honest, but I’ve watched enough television to confidently state here that the chairs in those things are the comfiest looking things you’ll get to see anywhere. In addition, they come across as being very obviously designed for optimum functional efficiency; making it as easy as possible for the truck drivers to reach every knob, lever, pedal or switch they might need to in the course of their travels.

The same concept in application explains many a gamers’ love of gaming chairs. When in the middle of a long-running game campaign; comfort, convenience and efficiency might very well be what determines your staying power. This encompasses your ability to keep your mind on the game and your reflexes sharp. Many a time, this is what separates the winners from everybody else. We all know which side we want to be on.

When traveling to Spain Barcelona is an obvious must see, must enjoy; and you will enjoy.

Nestled along the Catalonian coast of Spain, Barcelona represents a happy marriage between the old works and new age. Old world legends Pablo Picasso and Antoni Gaudi blend colorful with Catalonian modernism seen in the art and architecture of the city. Old world Cathedrals line the gothic streets and the serine bells can be heard chiming as you get happily lost through the winding alleyways of the city.

Barcelona is as beautiful and rich historically as it is within the gastronomic world. Described by Anthony Bourdain as some of the best food in the world, this Catalonian city is full of the best in Spanish food, wildly delicious blends of world cuisine and fusion restaurants with dishes as beautiful as they are tasty. You can enjoy tapas with fresh sea food brought in same day and order wine that is so good you won’t believe the small price tag. It’s all about quality over quantity here, and even when you find yourself full from appetizers, tapas, entrees and sangria you will somehow find room for the best donuts in the world (yes, the world) here in the many bakeries who showcase them on main streets and within alleys 2 for 1.20€.

When you visit this incredible city you’ll want to plan most of your days with historic sites like the Picasso Museum in El Born, visiting the many churches and cathedrals like the Sangrada Familia and through the Gothic Quarter. Take a trip to Park Güell, Casa Batlló, Montjuïc and gaze into its magic fountain as you walk along the colorful, vibrant streets. With so much to do and see remember to leave a day (or two, depending how long you stay) to just simply wander! You never know what famous restaurant you’ll turn up on or what incredible view you’ll catch in between old world apartment buildings.

Recommendation Letter for Social Work – 7 Mistakes You Should Never Make http://montasirahmed.com/recommendation-letter/ http://montasirahmed.com/recommendation-letter/#respond Fri, 26 Jun 2020 17:54:50 +0000 http://montasirahmed.com/?p=781 You have decided it is time to attend graduate school to earn your masters in Social Work.

You have decided it is time to attend graduate school to earn your masters in Social Work. You have your personal statement written, your transcripts sent and your application filled out. The last things you need to collect are your letters of recommendation. Before asking your top choices for their recommendation, read this over to make sure you made the correct choice and make sure you are able to proofread prior to submitting.

  1. Choose the correct people to write your letter of recommendation. Make sure they know you. To ask your Dean or head of yurt department in which you have met twice does not know you well enough to write your letter. Choose a former lecturer or your advisor. They know the work you put in and will put the work into your letter of recommendation.
  2. Do not write it for them and have them sign it. The school will be able to recognize the tone in bot your personal statement that is in your letter of recommendation. If the person is too busy to write it, then they are not worth asking. If you invested in them, then they should invest in you.
  3. Give plenty of examples. Admissions loves to read antidotes that set you apart from other applicants. Do not just say ‘Bob is a smart student’. Instead, write ‘Bob is at the top of his class and is very dedicated to his studies’. To see that you are top of your class according to your advisor will set you apart from others.
  4. Do not be vague, do not use plain language. If you are only ‘the student’ then how will you stand out? Make sure they use your name frequently through the reference. Make sure their vocabulary is heightened, but make sure it is used correctly. To have a professional reference use a word incorrectly makes you and they look bad.
  5. Too many positive words. If it looks as though they opened up a thesaurus and looked up the word ‘great’ and put as many variations in it as possible. You can only be great and stupendous in so many things before the reader becomes bored reading your letter of recommendation.
  6. Contradicting your applications theme. You said you want to work with the elderly, whole your letter of recommendation states you want to work with children. Well, which is correct? Make sure your advisor knows what population you want to work with prior to writing.
  7. The use of positive negatives. Do you work too hard? Or perhaps too hard on yourself! They do not want to see that you are stressed prior to starting your master’s degree. If you are unable to handle undergrad, then own do they expect you to keep a level head in graduate school? Make sure to keep the negatives out and only allow positive statements. Stress is not welcome here.

It is good to seek out advice prior to writing your UCAS personal statement for social work, or any other degree. To think of only 6 facts you should know is quite limited, as there are many facts you should know. As always, write your personal statement to show a bit of you in it, but also follow the advice given to you.

  1. Do not plagiarize. It is supposed to be your original work. How can they read about you, when you have taken someone else’s work and ideas? Then it is not your personal statement. Also, be careful since the statement is submitted online, the school may have a way to check to see if the work is original or not. Lastly, what if the person whose work you stole wanted to go into a different Scot of social work? Your application, personal statement and letters of recommendation would not match up. Then what?
  2. Lying is not allowed in your personal statement in social work. If you never volunteered at a care facility or interned at a retirement home, they do have a way of finding out. Your letter of recommendation would not match the places listed on your personal statement. Think twice before trying to beef it up.
  3. Applying late is not acceptable. If it is not in, then it shows that you did not care to submit in time and that there are other things that are more important. To be early is to be on time, to be on time is to be late and to be late is to be dead.
  4. Be clear. The admissions team want to know why. If you are unable to answer why clearly, then how can you expect to be accepted into the program? Explain, clearly and counsel why you want to go into social work. Use simple language to get your point across if necessary.
  5. Be enthusiastic. Women often write like we speak. If you are passionate about your application, then it will be reflected in your personal statement. It shows you care and you are excited to continue onto the next path in your education. Tell them why you want to study. Tell them how social work makes you feel. Enthusiasm will separate you from everyone else. Believe me.
  6. Do your research. If you think, but you do not know, then do not include it. Only write well researched facts you learned in school and facts you know about the university you are applying to. If the program is relatively new, do not make a statement that you have been dreaming of attending the program for your whole life. Not a good idea.

I hope these facts and titbits have helped you out while writing your personal statement in social work. Go over everything carefully and be sure to proofread once done writing. I am sure it will stand out when submitted.

The simplest explanation of apnea is that it’s a medical condition when a person makes pauses in breathing during the sleep. Besides that, breathing seems shallow and interrupted, with snoring between pauses. And that’s usually very loud and annoying snoring. Those pauses can be short and take a piece of a second, but can take very long time.

That can be very dangerous. The long break between breaths tends to stop someone breathing during the sleep. The person literally can suffocate. After the pause is finished, a person take a deep breath (because the organism is empty and feel stressed due to break in breathing); which can be followed with the ugly and loud sound of snoring.

A major problem in treating apnea is common believing that snoring is not a big problem. That is why the person avoids visiting the doctor. Even the person snore and its family complain about it. Snoring basically doesn’t cause apnea, but can be a very important symptom of it. Sometimes it shows that person’s life is practically in danger. That’s why is threatening of apnea starts from an understanding of the snoring and learning about the causes of it.

Snoring is a condition which people usually tend to ignore and make fun of it. Even family and partner find it very annoying and disturbing; this condition basically is not harmful, except for the married people who must live with the partner who snores. Otherwise, nobody else realizes how dangerous snoring can be. But, it is dangerous. When snoring is followed by apnea it can cause death. So, if you’ve know that you snore; you should consider the possibility of having apnea.

Do you remember children’s comic books when everybody who sleeps has the cloud with the letter „Z“ on the top of the head?

According to scientists, half of the population on the world snore. It’s possible that you or your partner snores. As a matter of fact, if you’ve never heard your partner snoring, you should consider the possibility that you are the one who snore… And, there is a very big chance that you or your family knows how sound of snoring looks like. Practically, every home has someone who snores.

In normal condition, snoring is just a sound of turbulence and resistance in the upper airway. Snoring can look like that it comes from the nose, but that’s a mistake. It’s actually formed in the back of airway, behind the tongue, usually because of the stricter oropharynx. All of these happen during the sleep when the airway is relaxed and the person doesn’t control breathing. This usually happens during the REM phase of the sleep, when your dream is deepest.  Upper airway becomes tight and smaller than usual; air, passing through the airway, causes vibrating of the soft tissues behind the tongue.

There are many factors that cause snoring, from age (elder snore more often than younger people), over the sex to the weight. Obesity people has more chance for a problem with snoring. There are also other causation like drinking alcohol or un-comforted position during the sleep. Those causation are permanent and stop after the changing of the position or bad habits.

If you found that every night is time for the “music” which comes from you, you should ask yourself do you have this disorder. Even the condition is usually taken as “normal” or “very often”, this condition is a very reliable symptom of sleeping apnea. And doctor should consider it and take all steps needed to examine the person and find the best cure.

Especially if some other symptoms are present, like repeated pauses in breathing during the day, excessive daytime sleepiness or loud and short inhaling during sleep, you are maybe a person with sleeping apnea.

Sleeping apnea is an actually chronic condition which doesn’t mean that it’s incurable, but interrupts the sleep and cause serious problems with the persons’ life quality. Those persons usually have short breath and poor concentration. Sometimes they have very obvious slow reflexes. They can’t fall in deep sleep or if they can they very easy wake-up and sleep poor and light. The consequences are obviously tiredness which leads to increased risk of accidents, prolonged stress, and many other sicknesses after a while. Even in daily sleeping a person can’t relax and fall into sleep.

Sometimes this problem is detected on regular doctor’s examination. And sometimes a person comes to the doctor because of problems with someone others sleeping. It’s not unusual to see someone’s wife in doctor’s office to ask for a help or advice.

The person who has sleeping apnea episodes during the sleep has a problem with oxygen level in the blood, which drops from time to time while the breathing stops. That’s why brain must wake up that person with a characteristic choking sound. A person, who was in sleep a second ago, usually doesn’t remember that sound or interrupted breathing and fall in sleep again. This type is called obstructive sleep apnea. The other type is central sleep apnea when a person does remember awakenings and that shocking during the sleep is something which is aware of.

If you have any of these symptoms go to your doctor:

  • Snoring, loud and unpleasantly every night
  • Gasping and choking during the sleep
  • Short of long pauses in breathing
  • Feeling short of breath during the night or after the shockingly waking up
  • Constantly feeling of tiredness, daytime sleepiness, and fatigue

There are some other symptoms which you may consider:

  • A sore throat and dry mouth every time after waking up
  • Nighttime awakenings and insomnia
  • Frequently going to the bathroom during the night
  • A headache in the morning
  • Impotence
  • Restless together with the fitful sleep
  • Depression with unusual moodiness and irritability

It’s especially dangerous if apnea is found in children, but it’s very easy to recognize in them. They sleep in strange positions, have perspiration at night, suffer from bed-wetting, have night terrors and loudly snore. In this case, if you suspect on sleeping apnea you immediately must go to the pediatrician who will do all important examines.

People are usually afraid of this condition once when they found out that they have it, but that is not something you should be scared of. There are many different and very successful ways for curing sleep apnea so you don’t need to worry about the resolving the problem you may have. Some of the very easy ways of curing apnea are:

  • Weights lose – if the doctor finds that you are obesity person, he will recommend weight loss as the first step in curing sleep apnea. That’s very easy to detect, just with measuring the person’s weight and finding the BMI as the comparison of someone’s weight, height, and age. There is a very obvious connection between obesity and sleep apnea, so the doctor will firstly consider that.
  • Surgical – when all other problems are solved and the person still has a problem, the doctor will recommend a surgeon. Besides the potentially surgically resolving a problem with obesity; the doctor can also operate upper airway where the stenosis is found and free airway for normally breathing.

If the problem with sleeping apnea is not that big and the person doesn’t have an anatomic problem in the body, he can learn some easy home methods for curing sleeping apnea. That actually means using home remedies which can’t cause any harm to the person, but can be very useful and successful in curing sleep apnea.

  • Honey

Honey has many great ingredients, which are not good only in curing, but as the prevention and stopping the many diseases and disorders. They have anti-inflammatory properties, good in curing and threatening inflammations and infections; reducing the swelling around the throat and lubricating it. It’s also great for promoting sleep and relaxation. Drink a glass of water with a tablespoon of honey before bedtime.

  • Chamomile

As our mothers learned us, chamomile tea before bedtime or after the stress situation can make a miracle for our dream and relaxation. It’s enough to use two tablespoons of tea and put it in a cup of hot water. After five minutes the tea is ready for drinking. You can drink it every night before bedtime or during the day. It’s actually no limitation in drinking the tea and if you like it, go ahead!

  • Cinnamon

A popular ingredient in the cookies is actually a great sedative with many benefits for our health and sleep. Add a medium-size cinnamon stick to a cup of hot water with a tablespoon of grated ginger and boil for a few minutes. You can also add a honey, which has a double effect and drink every day before bed. You can also use a cinnamon powder with boiled water as a tea that you’ll drink once a day. Or put cinnamon mixed with a little water on shoulder and neck for better sleep.

  • Lavender

As the most common cure for stress and insomnia, lavender can be prepared in many ways, but the best usage is as oil solution. Few drops of lavender oil put in a cup of hot water, wait for a couple of minutes. Inhale it before bedtime or at any time during the day when you need a relaxation.

  • Garlic

It can be swallowed with a glass of water before bedtime every night, but consult the doctor if you have any problem with the stomach and digestion.

  • Peppermint

It’s actually good option for reducing blockage in upper airways and for easy breathing. You can use it in water solution and inhale it. You can also consume it as a tea prepared with a cup of boiled water and a tablespoon of peppermint leaves.

Whatever the problem with your breathing and sleeping is, you should visit your doctor and consult him before starting with any home remedies.

A humorous quote attributed to Freud says that before accepting a diagnosis of depression, you need to make sure that the person is not surrounded by idiots. It was not possible to confirm whether the father of psychoanalysis is the author of this maxim. But the fact is that when it comes to women’s mental health, including depression, is twice as common when compared to men. Before diagnosing depression, it is the doctor who should make sure that the symptoms described by the patient are, in fact, of a psychic nature. @ Women’s Mental Health

To achieve this goal, it is necessary to rule out the presence of some diseases that leads to the manifestation of similar symptoms. The use of substances subject to abuse, as well as a possible simulation for legal purposes, among other factors.

Mental illness is a condition that leads to the limitation of functional capabilities. For the patient, there is a restriction of having feeling and well-being. And this impairs their working performance as a whole and, moreover, affects their social and family relationships, as it fails to mature. What the person experiences is a difficult to enjoy life in general. @ Women’s Mental Health

From the biological point of view, women are more vulnerable. Why? Cause it is under the effects of hormonal fluctuations that occur at menarche, pregnancy, perimenopause and menopause. But this can not be considered an exclusive factor. The genetic heritage is relevant. Children of a parent who has mental illness will have a greater chance of presenting the problem. If the father and mother have depression, the risk increases even more.

Thus, the hormone factor is one of organic elements, as well as genetic,  but environmental and social issues influence the condition. Women with less education are more vulnerable because they have less quality of life (including food and working conditions outside and at home), and still have little access to treatment and early diagnosis.

For her is easier ask for help because, apparently, the women admit suffering more easily than men. And it is faced in a more painful way, which leads her to recognize the problem and accept help. While men tend to resist more, they have a reduced perception of the damage that mental illness brings to life itself. This behavior in the medium and long term, lead to serious damage that could have been avoided if admitted. For example, depression or alcohol dependence. Added to this the fact that women are most in demand for assistance in any medical specialty. There is a macho culture that the search for support is a type of unacceptable weakness in the male ward. Fortunately, this is changing. @ Women’s Mental Health

What are the most common causes?

They are psychic and emotional. Before concluding a diagnosis, however, the expert must rule out any physical illness. Anemia has as manifestations sadness, discouragement, lack of energy. These signs seem to depression, but the origin is anemia. Hyperthyroidism will cause anxiety, insomnia, physical discomfort.

The use of substances such as medicine (hydrocortisone, dexamethasone) and drug abuse (alcohol, marijuana) too. And it may be that the malaise relates to personal, family or professional context, which leads us to the causes related. Add to that list a possible suggestibility of patients living with a psychotic person (folie a deux – “madness shared by two” in French, is a very rare psychiatric syndrome in which a psychosis symptom is transmitted from one individual to another), as well the simulation of the disease to get legal advantages. Discarded these possibilities, we will seek the causes. And they are multi-factorial: genetic, environmental (family and work) and even the weather.

The person experiences a set of psychological difficulties, emotional and relationship, but the conversation with the friend or spiritual leader does not relieve the emotional distress. The person realizes that is difficult to solve problems at work and to meet the family’s needs and your relationships. Finally, the right time to ask for help is always there is doubt and difficulty experiencing well-being, and when overcoming attempts have not led to a significant improvement.

Are severe cases when outpatient care, which excludes hospitalization, do not lead to an improvement. But in the last two decades the medicines options have improved their efficiency. Thus, the use of medicines, in addition to psychotherapy, brings more rapid and lasting results. Thus, gravity will be established from the need of intensive care, ie, weekly returns to the clinic or hospital.

Can you prevent mental illness? @ Women’s Mental Health

Yes, you can, by means of what is called secondary prevention. There are two types of prevention: primary, one that makes an assessment before the onset of the disease – a mammogram to identify breast cancer, for example. And the secondary, which does not perform tests, but stems from the enlightenment of the people on certain psychic pathology. This includes professionals of all levels, which should be ready to detect this type of symptom, in any assessment. In this case, what happens is an active search of the disease, although the reason for consultation has another goal. Secondary prevention is a way to anticipate a diagnosis by means of information – for the patient and the doctor. Both feel encouraged to look for corresponding signals, same as the query does not have this purpose.

Despite to be a small country, Uruguay may surprise you with its tourist charms. Bathed by the Rio de La Plata and numerous parks, where the movement is constant Uruguayans and their thermos bottle of mate herb. The country does not have large skyscrapers, pollution or traffic jam as in large urban centers in the world, on the contrary, the peace hovers around the country. By knowing the historic center of Montevideo you understand how the city attracts many tourists with its ancient history and rich culture.

With a landscape of beaches, fields, historic towns, and winery, Uruguay is certainly a country that should be used and lived down to the smallest detail. You will be delighted by the place right away, to arrive in one of the nicest airports in South America. With its modern and sophisticated design, the Carrasco airport calls attention by its size, cleanliness and structure in general.

When you settling in your hotel, it’s time to start your tour through the city. You can go by bus or car, the  Montevideo streets are very well marked, safe and the Uruguayans are very helpful. Below is our 5-day itinerary:

Day 1 – The starting point is the Plaza de la Independencia, the heart of the city, where it’s main artery, Avenida 18 de Julio, which is named after the date of enactment of the 1st Constitution of Uruguay. In addition to being the scene of several restaurants, theaters and pubs, is there that occurs every Sunday, the most important street fair of Montevideo, the Tristán Narvaja.

At the Plaza Independencia is the statue of the great national hero, General Jose Gervasio Artigas and just below the statue is the mausoleum where is the remains of Artigas. Access is by stairs side the statue.

Through one side of the square, you can meet what was already one of the largest skyscrapers of South America, the Salvo Palace (you can take the guided tour of the building).

Around the square, you will also find the Estévez Palace, the Torre Ejecutiva of the National Government and the famous Teatro Solís, which is the main artistic stronghold of Uruguay and worth a visit.

Also in the square is Puerta de La Ciudadela, a structure which was the entrance to a military fortress called Ciudadela, in the mid-eighteenth century. Now is an area that establishes the boundary between the old town and the new town. Passing through the door you will be in Ciudad Vieja and its heart is the Plaza Constitución where is the Metropolitan Cathedral of Montevideo, built in 1970. During the week the movement of people is intense, but on weekends the streets are deserted and not it is recommended to go through some of the dark streets. In the center of the square, there is a fountain opened in the 19th century.

After knowing the historic center of Montevideo, you can finish your day in the Port, to know the Mercado Del Puerto and savoring the famous Uruguayan meat in one of the several restaurants over there.

Day 2 – On the second day you can enjoy to relax and stroll the Ramblas, which is nothing more than a great avenue of 22 kms that is changing name along its length and along the Rio de La Plata. A good option is to rent a bike and see how Uruguayans maintains a good relationship with the river. If it is cold, sit in the river and take a mate to warm the body. Include that day a tour at the Rodó Park which is close there. If you are looking for nightlife, this is a great area to stay, where are the neighborhoods of Pocitos and Punta Carretas, known for its pubs and restaurants.

Day 3 – Leaving Montevideo, from bus or car, 180 kms south is the city of Colonia Del Sacramento. The small town is one of the most charming of Uruguay. The streets smell history, its so romantic restaurants, the colorful houses and its pleasant weather makes you want to return often.

To visit Colonia, just one day is enough, but go easy. Walk through its cobblestone streets, rest the edge of the Rio de La Plata, have a coffee in one of the charming restaurants with tables on the sidewalk.

Colonia is rich in history and culture, was founded in the 17th century by the Portuguese, but for a whole century, the city was fought with the Spaniards, who won the war. So the city has a unique architecture where the Lusitanian charm mingles with the Spanish. When walking through the city, you surely know the Calle de Los Suspiros, perhaps the best-known street in town. It has this name because of the slaves who lived there, rumor has it, to feel cold, hunger and pain, could be heard the sound of a cry, like a sigh. It is also on this street there is a famous workshop for its handicrafts and rare pieces.

Another historic building in Colonia is the Porton de Campo, built in the 20th century, is the gateway to the old town. In the vicinity of Porton is the main little square of the city, the Plaza Mayor and very nearby there is the lighthouse. Climb in the lighthouse and you’ll have a beautiful view of the city and Rio de La Plata.

End the day in the restaurants, delight you in a good chivito (typical dish) and tasting excellent Uruguayan wine.

Day 4 – Back in Montevideo, head north, 120 km’s is Punta Del Este. Known for its bustling summer, it is also very charming in winter. Surrounded by luxurious mansions and huge casinos, Punta is an extravagant city, but also quenches the plainest desires.

The city wakes up late and the movement in the streets starts around 10am. If it is summer, you can guarantee a place in the sun at Brava beach, where is the best-known landmark of the city, the Los Dedos (The Fingers). It was built by artist Chilean Mario Irrazabal in 1982, several arrangements for its meaning: the presence of man in nature, a man coming to life or the hand of a drowned man, so the monument is also known as La Mano (The hand) or Monumento ao Ahogado (monument to drowned man). You can enjoy exploring the river meets the sea. If you have time and want to take advantage best beaches and hype of Punta Del Este, you can extend your stay by a day or two.

If you go in winter, go on foot or ride a bicycle the Rambla enjoying the cool breeze of Punta. Visit Puerto de Punta, there is a marina, several restaurants and shops. It is in this port berthing large cruise ships.

At the end of the peninsula is a residential neighborhood with dozens of mansions, there is also the Punta lighthouse and the Iglesia de La Candelaria (a Church), it is worth to stop by. Another attraction can’t stay out and is also a postcard of the city is the Puente Leonel Vieira or Puente de la Barra.

Be sure to visit the Casino Conrad, considered the most important in South America and built in 1996, is the only Casino in Uruguay that is not managed by the government.

On the way back to Montevideo, worth the stop in Punta Ballena to enjoy the beautiful sunset at Casa Pueblo, a complex with many art galleries, museum, restaurants and hotel. It was built by the hands of the Uruguayan artist Carlos Paez Vilaró.
