Another picture of a cold sunny day at the Guaiba river promenade.These guys are my parents,my mom is holding her CHIMARRAO,a kind of hot drink made of a native and bitter herb,and prepared in a CUIA,a kind of wood bowl.Just as a curiosity,i added a recipe in the travelogue about how to prepare a good CHIMARRAO..only 4 steps,it's easy!
