Hugo y Paula (hbrunelli), I cannot tell you how happy we were to get your email this weekend as well as this thoughtful gift. It is simply wonderful and we appreciate it. Thank you! MW, this is a Yerba Mate. It is the national drink of Argentina, similar to green tea. This vessel is called the "mate". The straw is called the bombilla. When serving mate with a group of friends the ritual is to pass the mate around and everyone drinks from the same bombilla. Someday we wish to share a mate with Hugo and Paula. They are awesome MWers and great family. Thanks again! I forgot to mention a thank you for the pin and video CD, too. I wore the pin on my baseball cap at Disneyland this weekend. I tried watching the video on my mac and pc with no results, not sure what format was used. Will try to recode with Handbrake to watch. Anxious to see, thanks.
