Chimarrão (or Mate) - Acrilyc paint


Actually I live in São Paulo, but I'm from Rio Grande do Sul (extreme south of Brasil). Well In my state we drink a traditional tea from Guarany Indians andThose who share the mate join in a kind of bond of total acceptanceand friendship. Generally the server will start a new infusion andthen take the first drink. This is considered an act of kindness bythe other people in the circle, because usually the first serving isconsidered the worst.In my book I want to offer a symbolic Chimarrão to my dear friends of 54 group.Read more about chimarrão here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chimarr%C3%A3o
Sorry for my late and thanks for your patience
