More maté anyone?

I told the receptionist at my hotel that I loved the little maté they served me yesterday and she gave me one as a souvenir!

I picked up another funny one in Caminito earlier today (a funky, dicey neighborhood in the La Boca district).  It is a sort of papier machè wrapped around the gourd.

They just may be a new collectible for me!

I am also including a photo of the bombilla (straw) so you can see how the bottom, filter part works.
