On today's vlog, I've just landed in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I'm actually going to be based here for an entire month which is kind of crazy for me. So, the first step was to head out and do some grocery shopping. Included in my shopping was a gourd, and bombilla to drink yerba mate.
Yerba mate culture is strong in Argentina, and some other South American countries as well. There are some who see it like coffee or tea as it gives you a caffeine boost. But, there are others who talk about the yerba mate benefits because of the anti-oxidants it has. Here in Buenos Aires, and all over Argentina, you'll see people walking around with a gourd and a thermos of hot water as they are constantly drinking mate, it's sort of an addiction. I walk you through the yerba mate preparation in this vlog as well and give you my review of the tea.
After passing out for a jet-lag induced nap, I climbed up to the rooftop of my building apartment to enjoy a near perfect Argentine sunset.
Stick around to the travel vlog from here in Argentina. I'm sure there will be more yerba mate tea drinking and other fun here in Buenos Aires and area.
