Week Six – Uruguay

Post by Maxim Trevelyan » Mon Aug 06, 2018 12:01 am

Known for its verdant interior and beach-lined coast, Uruguay is a South American country situated by the Atlantic Ocean.

First, the sports enthusiasts will be happy to hear that we will watch a soccer match at Estadio Centenario, which was first for the first World Cup in 1930. Later in the evening, there will also be a qualification match for Quidditch World Cup.

Besides the beaches, we will also visit Uruguay's water parks Acuamania, Aquatic Park Termas de Salto Grande and Splash Aqua Park. After getting exhausted splashing in the water, we will gander around the museums such as Taller de Casapueblo, Andes 1972, Ralli Museum and Palacio Taranco. At the end, foodies will be glad of our visit to Mercado del Puerto.

Somehow, at the soccer and Quidditch matches, someone fired off a spell and now all music has gone quiet! Your job is to make a playlist of at least 20 songs (30 max) to be played during the match. Please make sure all songs are HOL appropriate. Also explain your selection in a couple of sentences (as a whole, not for each song).

Post your playlist as a reply to this thread by September 2nd 11:59 pm HOL time for 25 Hoots and 10 beans. Alternatively, if you do not wish for your submission to be posted for everyone to see, send it to me via HOL Forum message (Subject: BrtW – Uruguay) by the same due date.
Thank you Dario!
