Yeosu Expo 2012-Uruguay Pavilion

Uruguay Pavilion Entrance Sign

Entrance Sign to the Uruguay Pavilion

You could blow through the Uruguay Pavilion in 5 minutes, but, even though it’s small, it’s a well-done pavilion, with about a dozen small interactive video screens that give plenty of information about the country. There’s also a small snack bar with good seating and good food. I had a chivito (steak sandwich) with french fries, and, let me tell you, those fries are the best I’ve found at the Expo, with Belgian Fries a close second. So, give the pavilion a try, and, if you’re there in the morning, say hello to Roberto, an American expat living in Yeosu, who greets visitors at the entrance.

Note: Even though some of the pavilions are small, they’re all worth going through. You can find more than a few surprises (like the Uruguay snack bar), they’re usually quite nice, and, best of all, many of them have much shorter lines than the larger, major pavilions.

Here’s a shot of part of the interior.

My review:

Time and Day Visited: Thursday, May 24th, about 1:30 p.m.
Interior Design: Simple, but nice, blue motif.
Lines: I go by there often, but I’ve never seen many long lines.
Multimedia: About a dozen touch-screen videos.
Souvenir Shop: Small, but adequate
Cultural Assets: Not many.
Restaurant/Bar: Nice little cafe with pretty good food (check out the french fries), but no Uruguayan alcoholic beverages.
Overall Rating: Sure, check it out. Very friendly pavilion workers, good food in the cafe, no long lines, and interesting.

Yeosu Expo 2012-Another Accomodations Website

One of the blog readers, winsess, left a comment a few posts below this one about another website that lists acoomodations near the Expo. If you’re still planning on coming over and you need to find a room, check out BnBHero by clicking here. You have to create an account on the website, but it looks pretty painless AND it’s in English. Thanks for the great link, winsess!
