Men and mate...random entry

ARGENTINA | Thursday, 18 June 2009 | Views [375]

I'll keep this one short:

1-the men here are BEAUTIFUL!  But many are pigs.  Each day (EACH AND EVERY DAY) men say things to me on the street.  Some things are nice, some are vulgur, and many are whistles.  Sometimes...Most of the time, I want to turn around and yell: STOP!  IF YOU SAY ONE MORE THING, I SWEAR I'LL POP YOU IN THE FACE!  But that would only make it worse, so I do what the other girls here do.  I ignore them.

It's annoying and unpleasant.  But it's interesting at the same time.  In America, women...well in my opionion, women aren't complimented enough and the media gives us role models who are unrealistic.  Anyway, girls aren't often told that they look nice, etc.  But here, it's the other end of the spectrum.  There needs to be a balance.  (i'm a libra, can you tell?)

2- MATE.  The elixor of life.  I wanted to share this with you.  MATE is AMAZING!  It's a herb that people drink here (like 5 times a day).  It's better than anything.  it's the national drink of Argentina.  Basically, it's changed my life.  It helps me concentrate, gives me energy without jitters (I can't handle coffe), and clairity.  i'm a yerba mate freak now. I carry it around with me :) more info here:


Here's to your health!
