Following this, we were all herded into 4x4s to go to see another section of the glacier from the land. We were told to sit 5 per side, although there were only seatbelts for 4. The ...
... even teenage boys walking around town with their mate thermos, that it was time to try this bizarre-looking concoction. It turns out that multiple people from multiple families drink from the same metal straw! The good thing is that we tried the mate before becoming aware of this. (Mate is a tea. The interesting thing was that the cup was crammed with herbal leaves and then a tad of hot water ...
