MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay - Standing in the central plaza of the neighborhood of humble homes known as La Teja, an old leftist militant points out monuments in the life of Tabare Vazquez, the local hero favored to win today's presidential election. "That building is La Escuela Yugoslavia, where Tabare went to grade school," said Alvaro Medino, who runs a nonprofit radio station. "Over there is the Arbolito Sports Club, where he started the clinic after his father died of cancer. ... And the night he was elected mayor, this was where we celebrated."

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay -- The Tupamaros were among South America's most famous guerrillas, fearless young revolutionaries fighting for social justice.But 17 years after their defeat by the army and six years after becoming a legal political party, they seem dated and out of step -- a fringe group even in a country where the left is gaining political strength.Today, the Tupamaros -- formally known as the National Liberation Movement -- are fighting for their political lives.While former insurgent groups in Colombia, Venezuela and elsewhere have softened their rhetoric and become major political forces, the Tupamaros remain hard-line socialists committed to class struggle and a battle against the United States, which they see as the source of worldwide imperialism.

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay -- A bubble-shaped 1939 Plymouth weaves its way through traffic followed by a polished 1930 Ford Model A. A Chevy from the mid-1940s sits at a stop light, while a Buick from the same era crosses the intersection.In this tiny, gentle country that seems forgotten by time, Uruguayans love their old cars, tinkering and collecting them with tireless energy. There are three antique car clubs in the capital, and several antique car road rallies are held each year.But today, many Uruguayans drive old automobiles as much out of necessity as nostalgia.
