I've been following posts here for about six months.  I'm looking into retiring abroad somewhere.  Uruguay has some appeal, though I'm not sure of the feasibility.  I'll be retiring on a Soc Sec pension and a small annuity.  It does not appear we would be able to afford any of the coastal towns.  However, would it be possible to get by in the countryside?  My wife and I have in mind renting at first and possibly
building a small DIY earth sheltered house with wood stove heat and
no A/C, so full time electricity would be optional (a windmill generator (re-purposed automobile alternator) with batteries and an inverter would provide enough power for a small refrigerator, a few lights, radio, TV,  computer etc.  Is  this idea even feasible in Uruguay?  Or should we be looking elsewhere?

What a great discussion - gracias a todos for sharing experiences, concerns and opinions. I arrive in March and am looking to spend a year (to get through a whole cycle of seasons!) before making a final decision. Looking forward to it... best to you +1copierdoc on your journey!
