República Oriental del Uruguay
May 3, 2012
Dear Family and Friends,
Soon after I purchased my Lonely Planet Argentina travel guide, I wrote a strong letter to the editor. I told him I was disappointed that the front cover, the spine and the inside cover neglected to indicate any reference to Uruguay. The small Uruguay chapter is at the very end of the book and appears to be just an afterthought.
The editor responded with some silly explanation but will consider my recommendation for the next edition. (I checked. The latest addition is modified per my comment.)
Uruguay does form a buffer state between its enormous and popular neighbors, Brazil to the north and Argentina to the south
