Where should we go in Montevideo, Uruguay? 40-something couple (M/F) seek tips on restaurants, sights, shopping, good photo spots (we're both serious Flickrites). We'll be there in February. Have already collected various guidebook and internet tips - looking for personal experiences of great places. Will also be in Colonia del Sacramento and probably taking a day trip to Punta del Este to photograph Casapueblo.
I like the idea of "tour" audio that's loaded into my GPS unit, and as I drive through, say, Virginia, a voice tells me about Civil War battles and troop movements that took place in my immediate area. Here's one vendor that makes these. Question is -- how hard would it be to make my own? What technical expertise/hardware/software would be required?

36 Hours in Yosemite: I'll be attending a conference in San Francisco and will have most of the weekend to kill. We've already booked a hotel room just outside Yosemite National Park. I plan on seeing the Giant Sequoias, and generally just driving around. There's so much to see there that only 36 hours seems like a travesty. Alas. What are some must see things there that I can enjoy at a relatively relaxed pace in my short time there?

I'm going to be in Chile for work at the end of September and I'll have a few days to travel around at the end of the trip. Being a female travelling alone, I probably won't want to be in the middle of nowhere, so I suppose I'll have to stick to the well-travelled areas. I can start my travels either from near La Serena or Santiago (work is near La Serena, flight home is from Santiago). I'm very, very excited about seeing some of South America, but I'm a bit overwhelmed! What have you done in Chile that was really awesome? What should I not miss? What local dishes should I make sure to try?
