How to cure my gourd?

October 30, 2014 | Leave your thoughts

I have had a few days without sketching in my sketchbook (yes! It does happen sometimes) and so last night I had to fix that situation….very quick rough sketch!

It is amazing that I have been back from Brazil for 6 or 7 weeks and have not opened chimarrao (mate) tea or used the gourd that was a lovely gift from Paulo on the last day of the symposium. The full story about how and why is here.

Anyway – I am not sure that my gourd is quite ready to use – does it need to be cured? The water is fizzing when I pour it into the gourd. Can someone help me?

It is rather shameful that my first cup was in a white china mug – just not right at all!
