An ID only with 4 digits, I don't remember when was the last time that happened. This is my 1st official card from Uruguay and only my 4th card from this country. Another neat detail is that it was fully written in Portuguese. Obrigada Natalia. 

Teatro Solís, in Montevideo, is Uruguay’s oldest and most renowned cultural theater.

Located in Montevideo’s Plaza Independencia, the building is a perfect example of neoclassical, Old World architectural splendor. 
The theater was designed by the Italian architect Carlo Zucchi using timber and marble brought over from Europe and stored away while war raged in Uruguay. After years of delay, the theater finally opened in 1856 with a rendition of Verdi’s opera Ernani. 
The design—including the elegant façade (which has been completely restored), carved canopy and pillars, and elliptical interior—was heavily influenced by Italian architecture. The similarities can be seen in the Teatro Carlo in Genoa, the Milanese Teatro alla Scala, and most of all the Teatro Metastasio di Prato near Florence. - in:
