The State apparatus

If you come to Montevideo, you´ll certainly stroll through the 18 de Julio Avenue, and on it you´ll find the Intendecia or City Hall building, a true monument to State apparatus.
Standing in front of it you ca´nt avoid feeling like being in Berlin or Beijing in the 60s, in spite of its retro looks (as in retrograde), its worth visiting, since it has a "Mirador" where you can see the main buildings and monuments in the city. Be advised that you have to get a little slip ,outside the building, at a tourist info booth, that's located at one of the intersections, just to have that feeling of bureaucracy...
