Uruguay - Geography
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     What is your favorite food in the whole wide world? Do you like a kind of fruit? What about candy? Would you say a hamburger is your favorite food? Hamburgers are made of beef, of course, and there's one place where beef is very popular. In fact, you could say that beef is this country's favorite food. This country is Uruguay, and its people love beef.
 
2     Uruguay is a small country in South America. It is squeezed in between Argentina and Brazil. It is a country of many rivers. One big river, the Uruguay River, separates Uruguay from Argentina. Uruguay's capital city is called Montevideo. Montevideo is located on the north side of the Rio de la Plata. Rio de la Plata, which means River of Silver in English, is an estuary. Do you know what an estuary is?
 
3     If you've been to a river, you know rivers flow. The water in a river moves. At the end of a river, this water pours into an ocean. River water is fresh, which means it has no salt. Ocean water is very salty. Sometimes, when a river meets an ocean, the ocean is stronger. This means that instead of river water pouring into the ocean, salty ocean water pushes into a river. This is called an estuary.
