Uruguay By Shelby Valentine
and Dana Lopez Food Independence Government History of Uruguay Modern Uruguay established in 1516. The first permanent settlement on the territory of present-day Uruguay was colocada, or settled by the Spanish in 1624 at Soriano on the Rio Negro. Spanish colonization increased as Spain sought to limit Portugal's expansion of Brazil's frontiers. Under Jos Gervasio Artigas, the Uruguayans in 1815 declared their region independent of Argentina. Uruguay was conquered again by Brazil in 1820. Independence was achieved again due to British mediation, and the country became a republic with Jos Fructuoso Rivera as president. The government was originally a republic with a president. After the civil war, the government was changed to a dictatorship. After the dictatorship was abolished, the Uruguayans went back to a democracy. The Famous
Uruguayan Flag Music The flag of Uruguay features nine stripes of alternating white and blue, with white on the top and bottom stripes. In the upper-left corner of the flag, the canton is white with a golden sun, which has sixteen rays of sunshine. The sun, called the sun of May, is a national symbol of Uruguay, representing the Inca sun god Inti. It represents the moment when the sun broke through the clouds on May 25, 1810, accepted as a good omen for the budding nations of Spain and the Spanish American colonies. The nine stripes on the Uruguayan flag represent the nine departments of Uruguay at the time the First Constitution of Uruguay was signed in 1830.

It was designed using the colors of its neighbor and fellow former colony of Spain, Argentina, and has a resemblance to the flag of the United States. And Entertainment Uruguay entertainment is supported by the restaurants, pubs, nightclubs, theater, ballet and shops of the place. A major source of entertainment in Uruguay for the young crowd is going to the nightclubs of Uruguay playing loud and tango music. When it comes to popular food in Uruguay there are some basics that have to be at the top of the list. We need to start by the asado, without any doubt the most popular food in Uruguay. Asado could be closely followed in the list by chivitos and milanesas, both of them very popular and a traditional component of the Uruguayan cuisine. Then, we can also find a delicious dessert called Chaja that is often present at their dinner table. Some types of food: Uruguay's early 19th century history was shaped by ongoing fights between the British, Spanish, Portuguese, and colonial forces for dominance in the La Plata basin. Montevideo, a military stronghold, was captured and occupied by British from February to September of 1807. Uruguay has a presidential representative democratic republic. They have the three branches of government, just like the United States. The legal system is based on the Spanish civil code. The Legislative branch has a bicameral, or two house, legislation. The Judiciary branch is independent from both other branches, much like the United States.z The government was originally a republic with a president. After the civil war, the government was changed to a dictatorship. After the dictatorship was abolished, the Uruguayans went back to a democracy. milanesa napolitana: a milanesa with ham, tomato and mozzarella cheese on top. Other popular way to eat milanesas is "al pan": A milanesa sandwich which usually has tomato, lettuce and mayonnaise. Similar to a barbecue, the asado is a meal consisting of an assortment of meats cooked over a wood fire. The asado includes different cuts of beef, ribs, sausages, sweet breads, chitterlings and organ meats. Asados are enjoyed at parrilladas, or restaurants with grills. Hearty and filling, the chivito is a sandwich filled with sliced steak, vegetables, cheese, olives and pickles. The chivito canadiense is a variation of the chivito that includes bacon. Look for chivitos at street food stalls, coffee shops and pubs in Uruguay. Chaja is a sponge cake topped with whipped cream and crushed meringue cookies. Chaja is found at tearooms, cafes and bakeries in Uruguay. Some of the different types of Uruguayan music is ''Tango", "Candombe", and "Uruguayan Rock". C T R o g n a Tango is more than 100 years old. It originated in the poorer areas of Buenos Aires, Argentina and Montevideo, Uruguay. 'Honest' women were not supposed to dance Tango. Therefore, men danced Tango - with other men. They did this to 'practice' (and to teach the unexperienced) for their late night adventures. This changed in the twenties, when Tango became socially accepted and spread throughout every dancing hall. e b m o d n a Candombe the dance was a local fusion of various African traditions. A complicated choreography included a final section with wild rhythms, freely improvised steps, and energetic, semi-athletic movements. In the third decade of the 19th century the word candombe began to appear in Montevideo, referring to self-help dancing societies founded by persons of African descent. The term means "pertaining to blacks" in Ki-Kongo. In Montevideo it meant more than a dance or a music or a congregation, but all of the above. k c o Uruguayan rock first emerged in Uruguay in the 1950s. The real breakthrough for rock in Uruguay, however, as in much of the world, was the arrival of The Beatles in the early 1960s. The Beatles were wildly popular across the world, and many Uruguayan youths began to form their own rock bands.like Los Shakers, Los Iracundos, Kano y Los Bulldogs, Los Mockers and Los Malditos. Currency José Alberto "Pepe" Mujica Cordano born 20 May 1935 is the President of Uruguay since 2010. A former guerrilla fighter, he won the 2009 presidential election and took office as President on 1 March 2010. He is known as “the world’s ‘poorest’ president” because he donates 90 percent of his 12,000 dollar monthly salary to charities.. Uruguayan peso has been a name of the Uruguayan currency since Uruguay's settlement by Europeans. The present currency, the peso uruguayo was adopted in 1993 and is subdivided into 100 centésimos. In 1994, stainless-steel 10, 20 and 50 centésimos and brass 1 and 2 pesos uruguayos were introduced. 5 and 10 pesos uruguayos were introduced in 2003 and 2000, respectively.
