Buenos Aires and Montevideo

In many ways, Buenos Aires seems like a bigger, flashier, faster version of Montevideo. The biggest difference is one of scale: the greater Buenos Aires area has more than 10 million residents. This leads to many differences; Buenos Aires has city streets with 10 lanes in one direction, a university with over 300,000 students, a subway system, more shopping malls, many more skyscrapers, and generally more of everything.

Buenos Aires was also hotter. While both cities are on the Río de la Plata, Montevideo seems to get more of the sea breeze.
