Going to miss being in Uruguay. But at least I’m going to see @drexlerjorge in concert in London next week. https://www.roundhouse.org.uk/whats-on/2020/in-the-round/jorge-drexler/

The end of a wonderful week visiting vineyards and bodegas in Uruguay. A lot has changed since my last tour here 20 years ago. Uruguay nomá!
