  1. I enjoy each video and watch every Friday for the new one. I will be very glad for the ladies that narrate the videos to be back in studio. It is nice to see their smiling faces at the end of each video, plus the sound quality is much better in the studio. Narrating the way they are right now, they can be a bit hard to understand, the studio audio systems clear that all up.

  2. This is a very interesting video. However, I found the information regarding the estuary is not accurate in the following: it says: "… an estuary formed by the confluence of the Parana and Uruguay rivers." Parana is up North, thus, not related to the estuary. The estuary is formed by the mixing of the sweet water of Uruguay river into the salty Atlantic ocean. From the Punta Gorda, in the department of Colonia, to the west Punta del Este, in the department of Maldonado, the Rio de la Plata is exactly between the river and the Atlantic ocean. In fact , it is not a river, but an estuary, as it has regular tides.
