Yerba mate and writing

844610937_c44280c404

I know there’s at least a yerba mate lover in the group. For those who
don’t know what mate is, I have put some pics in my profile with some
of my moleskines

Mate is drunk in many places in SouthAmerica, although it’s usually
asociated with Argentina and Uruguay. Drinking mate is a ritual in its
own. I’ve noticed there’s 2 "schools of thought": The Argentinean in
which you put yerba in the mate, add water and drink, and then the
Uruguayan which makes the Japanese tea ceremony look like using a
lipton teabag. I belong to the latter group.

Caveat: mate is strong stuff; I have it neat ("amargo" or "cimarrón")
