Garzon (ghost town in UY) + La Pedrera

While in Punta we drove for about 40 minutes to Pueblo Garzón - a small town close to José Ignacio, and to La Pedrera, a little further. Garzon is a gorgeous village worth discovering... maybe just because there is nothing there, and the tranquility and silence one experiences upon arrival, is almost absurd... just a few, small houses, a plaza, dirt roads, and a posada /restaurant operated by one of South America's leading chef's, Francis Mallmann.
