The Mate for the argentinians is like the tea for the british!
we drink it everywhere! at work, at school, at college, at university, in a park, at home, with friends, with work collegues, with family members, we share it with everyone who ask for it!
the mate is hot beverage that is serve using a mate (the cup that we use for drinking mate hs the same name that the recipient) and you use a straw. to drink. You fill the mate with yerba mate and some sugar and then you add hot water ( needs to be below boling point)
It's really common that when you meet someone to your house in the afternoon you invite the person for drink MATE and some "biscochitos" ( kind of salad biscuits) or any other sweet biscuit
If someone offers you to drink a mate, don't refuse, Argentinians may think you are being rude, they might think you don't want to drink it because you don't want to share the straw... Anything won't happen to you if you drink just a little :P
Some people say that you should drink MATE if you want to waste some pounds because you don't get hungry! And also if you are studing and you are falling asleep you can drink MATE and it will help you to don't get sleep :P
You didn't come to Argentina if you haven't taste a MATE!
A bird who knows all....
Something interesting to look for on the streets of San Telmo on a Sunday is the man in the picture--or one like him. With him he has sort of an organ, like a barrel organ, and on top of it, a cage with a small parakeet inside. The man pays the organ, then lets the bird out of its cage, opens the drawer and the bird picks out your fortune. All of tis for a small tip, of course. This is something that used to be more common on city streets of Buenos Aires, a custom brought over from Europe, and one that is now fading away. If you're lucky, you'll see it in San Telmo. It's pretty neat!
BUENOS AIRES : BEAUTIFUL BUILDINGS
There are numerous beautiful buildings around the centre of Buenos Aires. Don't be like the usual city people who hurry past everything in haste without taking note of anything. Take time to admire your surroundings.
A recommended building to watch out for is the Aguas Argentina (Water Department of Argentina) which is along Avenida Cordoba. I read from a book by Borges that this is actually just a WATER TANK!!! Incredible!
Look up at the ceiling....
Galerías Pacífico is a shopping mall located on Florida Street. The Beaux Arts building was designed by the architects Emilio Agrelo and Roland Le Vacher. The building was modelled after Le Bon Marche in Paris. THere are beautiful frescos in the cupola of the mall. The central panel in the image was painted by Antonio Berni. The mall houses many high-end stores, such as Tiffany's, Polo Ralph Lauren, Christian Lacroix, Christian Dior, Lacoste and Tommy Hilfigger so shop to your heart's delight.
