‘Anciano’ (Spanish/Portuguese)–noun: ‘old man’
The Guaraní people started drinking mate in a region that currently includes Paraguay, southern Brazil, southeastern Bolivia, northeastern Argentina and Uruguay. The Guaraní have a legend that says the Goddesses of the Moon and the Cloud came to the Earth one day to visit it, but they instead found a yaguareté (jaguar) that was going to attack them. An anciano (old man) saved them, and, in compensation, the goddesses gave the old man a new kind of plant, from which he could prepare a “drink of friendship”.
