We had a little visitor, this morning. When I went out to open up the shutters, lo and behold, there was a little possum who had snuck in behind the shutters- probably to escape from the neighborhood dogs. He did not seem to be hurt, and has moved behind the open shutters and taken a little bread. I am sure he will find his way home, tonight, when it gets darker.
I also got a new one peso coin and this now features the armadillo (which in Uruguay is called a "mulita"). I have always thought of armadillos as being desert creatures, but apparently they can be found in Uruguay (I don't know where, however).
