1. Mate Drink
Mate also known as yerba mate is a very popular drink in Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Bolivia and Brazil. In Argentina you will see some people on the streets holding a pot that is made of metal or leather and drinking it with a metal straw.

I am not a fan of Mate because the taste of Mate is a little bit bitter for me. In some tea shops I am sure you can find this tea and you can try for yourself.

1. Alpacas and Llamas
Like many other countries in South America, in Peru, you will see these lovely animals called Alpaca and Llamas. At first glance, they look so alike.

Alpacas are more preferred for their finer fiber.
