Uruguay: Great Things About Living in Uruguay

Gabriel Lopez caught some slack for writing about the ten things he hates about living in Uruguay on his blog From Uruguay. He then decided to look at it from the other viewpoint, which produced the post “Ten Things I Love About Living in Uruguay” that includes family, food and easy traffic, but in the end, “it's a place in the world were you can enjoy life in relative safety, make friends without much problem, raise a family, make a difference, be recognized and loved. Well, isn't that pretty much what life is about?”

    I think you meant “flack” instead of slack.

    Anyway, I feel what Gabriel said was on the mark, and was not disrespectful of his country. There is no such thing as a Perfect Country.

    Many people are considering moving to UY, the truth is the country’s strength.
