Maté, Bizcocho and Wool

Our quest for good king crab was fulfilled at a spot called "Volver," along Ushuaia's waterfront. The restaurant was staffed by a husband/wife combo who were the nicest people ever and gave us a rundown of their sustainable crabbing practices. Afterward, I was able to find my favorite brand of Yerba Maté along with my favorite brand of bizcocho biscuit to have with the Maté. Any Maté fantatic knows that a sweet, buttery biscuit is the perfect thing to accompany the bitterness of Yerba Maté. This brand knows their stuff, they even put the Maté gourd on their package to let everyone know:

A cold rain came down throughout the afternoon, causing the temperature to drop significantly and sending us scrambling for last-minute warm clothing for our boat trip. We stopped by an artisan market on the waterfront and met a nice older man who spun clothing out of alpaca and wool in the style of his mother. I bought a wool Ruana, which is a cross between a Sarape and a Cape. B got a Chalé, which is like a shawl. Both kept us warm as we sipped our delicious Maté, eating bizcocho and playing cards into the night.
