Uruguayan Gestures #1

I have honestly never been around a culture that uses- consistently and frequently uses- so many gestures. Sure, Italians speak with their hands. But Uruguayans give detailed soliloquìes with their digits. The following entries won't cover all of the gestures used. A) because there are a lot to go over and B) some of them I don't want to explain.

Our lovely (and very shy) model Joanna exhibits the first of the many gestos: ojo (eye). As in, "be careful" or "be suspicious of whatever the subject is".

Every Friday a new Uruguayan gesture (those that aren't completely foul and offensive) will be posted, as long as we can keep it up. If you have a gesture you would like to show, send it on over to my email...
