Montevideo - Post Report Question and Answers

Is it easy to make friends with locals here? Are there any prejudices or any ethnic groups who might feel uncomfortable here?

I think if you have a connection through work or other activities it's easier, but it takes a while for people to warm up to you if you aren't from there. I found people to be generally kind and friendly. - Jul 2020

I think Americans can feel harassed, and there seems to be anti-American sentiment even in the schools. I believe racism is also present towards African-Americans. - Apr 2019
