    I don't know what I'm offended more by: the Buddhic cultural appropriation or the lack of an accent aigu on "éclair." A macron isn't an acute. Also, an ampersand isn't an E. Total fail.

    I kid. I'm sure it was a fine cup of tea. Also I'm fine with it.

    So what was actually in the packet named “ēclair”? One assumes it wasn’t an éclair.

    This is an éclair, for those close to France.

    I'll have two of those, coffee and a huge sugar overload. =)

    Argentina is eternally torn between honouring its European heritage or rushing to Miami at the first opportunity.
    In this case it's just a bar in the city centre that exaggerates its Frenchness.
    And the Buddha? oh that was me! I passed by a shop that sells bijou supplies and I always buy something to leave somewhere... Eventually someone finds it.

    A very strange thing is that I opened the sugar bag by mistake...and it didn't sweeten at all!
    I figured that because I didn't use sugar, I should have noticed it.

    but by far our folkloric icon, spread all over the country and at every moment is the mate.
    A tremendous companion and a ritual among friends that remains intact.
    Ideal before and after practice.

    Science has proved it: drinking mate causes a feeling of pleasure and happiness.
