Mussel Empanadas - Punta del Diablo

I can't travel anywhere in Uruguay without tasting the local empanadas. I would feel as though I were cheating the new location. Punta del Diablo did not disappoint with its fisherman village offerings.

This town is mellow, very mellow until right about now (when the summer vacation-ing starts). The restaurants begin to open up (they are permanently closed most of the year), more people walk the dirt roads, and the "for rent" signs surely come down at some point - or maybe not. But the homes are full of tourists.

But enough of the words, here are some more pics from the weekend (below and at this link).
