No Comments 18 July 2014

There are many ways to soak up the culture of a foreign destination: by visiting museums, for example, chatting to locals or simply walking around.

Mate Manners

5 Comments 28 March 2013

The Cebador hands me the cuia, I pause for a moment and think about everything I have learned. I slowly extend my right hand looking him in the eyes and giving him a slight nod. I take the first drink from the bombilla careful not to move it around but instead let it sit stiffly [...]

As soon as I entered the house I could smell it. The familiar scent of cardamom – my favorite spice in the whole world. Etedal asked if I wanted some Arabic coffee, of course I did…I had been up for more than 30 hours and if I were going to somehow make it through jetlag [...]
