Uruguay, the so-called Switzerland of South America, as all the countries analyzed, is rocked between ghosts and fantasies, between what can and what should be, between normalization in consumption and the absence of discrimination and inequalities. As we have already argued, the question, contradiction and experience of a democratic and republican recovery of Uruguayan institutions that is reflected in the expectations of citizens and that shapes the deep consolidation of waiting and patience as public virtues emerge in this direction. In this framework we have organized the exposition as follows: 1. we outline the contexts, voices and experiences in Uruguay; 2. provide and account of history and current interstitial practices; and 3. offer some reflections as a way of partial closure.
