asciilifeform: there was surprising amt of commerce b/w uy and su, even in my father's time. he mentioned that as young man, working in port (odessa) several times loaded/unloaded vessels to/from montevideo
asciilifeform also found out that he has (very distant) relatives in BingoBoingostan, apparently. ww2-era runaways, supposedly owned a glass shop. whether alive in modern day, unknown.

asciilifeform saw remarkable amt of old ru junk in the sunday market in '18. incl. a 'boss office phone' w/ sovok coat of arms, wiring ripped 'with meat', the kind w/ 'selector'
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Not too surprising given the political history of Uruguay. Even before the Fat Forehead party was a thing, the Colorado party was rather "left"
jfw: got those market pics in my queue for tomorrow, for any junk aficionados.
