A seriously cool Uruguay note featuring a seriously cool poet, looking pretty cool 😎 Juan Zorrilla de San Martín was a Catholic Uruguayan epic poet – he is referred to as the “National Poet of Uruguay” – and political figure! Two of his most famous poems are Tabaré (the national poem for Uruguayans) and La leyenda patria (The Fatherland Legend).

Also, did you know? The name Uruguay comes from the Uruguay River which means ‘river of the painted birds’ in the Guarani language. The river starts in Brazil and ends in the Rio de la Plata Basin which forms the water border between Uruguay and Argentina.
