Cabo Polonio: Weed Brownies

  • Cabo Polonio, Uruguay.
    Well, we had a small gathering at our posada in the evening, and we drank a bottle of cachassa in shots. This is how good Irmante felt in the morning.

    The lady who ran our posada was an old hippie who told me she had lived here in 1983, left in 1991 to raise her child, and came back four years ago. I asked her the difference, and she said that in 1983 there were 150 people living here. Now there are only 38, so she said it is not as fun. I was surprised to hear that a place like this was drying up.

    That is all that a lighthouse light is, with a lot of magnified glass. Amazing!

    The cattle rack trucks, taking people home. The only way to get in or out is along this beach and then through the sand dunes further up on the right.

    Safe brownies vs unsafe brownies. Marijuana is legal in Uruguay, and a very pretty lady named Camella came around to sell her famous baking. She said she makes her income from it. A safe brownie is $0.65 U.S. while a complete brownie is $3.50 U.S.

    Well, this was hands down the best part of my night. I found this flute in the posada. I played the hell out of this thing, and the huge dog in the posada decided to howl along and sing with me. So, we made music, for a long time. It sounded terrible, but it was a ton of fun. The dog and I seemed to enjoy it more than anyone else within ear range.
