Mate

<<previous next>>
Uruguay Yerba Mate
Mate is the name of a typical beverage of the river plate zone, shared with south of brazil and argentinians. It's an infusion of a weed named "yerba" (wich actually in spanish means weed), like tea, but the weird thing is that it is drinked (sipped actually) in a special recipients made out of a dried, hollow "fruit" (it's kinda small pumpking) called mate, wich names the whole thing. You sip it with a metal thing called "bombilla". There I've said it. It's like coffe, some sort of stimulator, very popular among students to start the day, and to stay awake until late.

Half of the population or more are on it, people carry their own "mates" to work, and it's also a social drink, it's unpolite to have mate and not offer, and if someone requests "a mate", while you are having it's almost illegal to deny it.

Hi, thanks for your blog.
I am a Chinese. Now more and more Chinese began travelling to Uruguay. For me, it is the same condition. Besides, I heard that there is a well-famed exposition in Uruguay called the Expo. Prado. I got a great interest in it. I wonder if there is a great and beautiful Exhibition Hall for us to visit in Uruguay.

my family always preferred Brazilian mate to Argentine as it was less bitter and lasted longer

Mate came from Argentina first.

Mate come from Paraguay, first, and it is a tradition in Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay, mostly. Just take a look at:

Hey Gabouy, the hallow fruit used for mate is a gourd (English) name for the type of pumpink that you are explaining which is a fruit. And the "bombilla" people understand better if you say is a type of straw that you sip from.

people in uruguay not only drink the weed but they also smoke it

i've been living in montevideo for two years and I find it very pleasant. A lot of weed

Hi Gabouy!
I am a public relations - marketing - sports marketing professional in Chicago, but our economy is terrible as is the job market. I am fluent in Spanish, conversation in Portuguese, and always heard fantastic things about Uruguay. I am interested in possibly relocating to Uruguay from the U.S. Would you please contact me, perhaps you can answer some business questions?
Gracias,
Steve
