Overview

El Greetingman, hombre que saluda, es una escultura donada a Montevideo por el artista surcoreano Yoo Young-ho, primera de una serie de gemelas que se instalaran en la frontera de Israel-Palestina y Corea del Norte y del Sur, entre otros lugares. Eligio Uruguay por estar en las antipodas geograficas de Corea. Sus 6 m de altura y color celeste lo convierten en foto obligada para el turista.

You will have to drive your car relatively far away to find this monument. It is worth the visit if you have time. This area is more popular among locals than tourists.
