Exposición Rural

Today is the last day of the Expo Prado. We enjoyed it enough that we visited again. We had a very nice lunch at the Hereford parilla restaurant. Several of the restaurants are white table cloth establishments with china plates, wine glasses, etc. Much nicer than anything I've seen at a U.S. fair.

The exhibit building from China featured a $20,000 (US) toilet/sink/bidet set. I'm sorry I didn't get a photo. Otherwise it had the same kinds of booths selling various products that many of the other countries had. The newspaper complained that the Chinese exhibits were all in English, with no Spanish.

The US exhibition did offer more than Pringles yesterday. A Country and Western band was singing. The cowboy hats and boots were Texas-style; the singers were drinking mate on break, so I'd guess they were local to Uruguay.
