Let's begin this month's recent photos gallery with a little geography lesson: Uruguay! Guide Alvaro Jaramillo recently completed our inaugural Field Guides tour to the country. It was a lot of fun: a voyage of discovery in the land of gauchos, criollas, the tannat wine grape (for your oenophiles), yerba mate, and numerous open-country and woodland birds. Above is a map of our tour route to introduce you to the layout of this small South American country.
