I want to show you what winter is like in 

Montevideo . . . in June!

The men in the photo below are not tourists. In fact, while they are not completely related to the indigenous Uruguayans, they are the remaining descendants of slaves; making up a large portion of the population in Uruguay. These people have retained their original traditions, music, and dances. One particular style being the Candombe dance.
