    So, is mate an acquired taste or is it possible I might like it?

    It simply tastes like shit. But the sustained feeling of it VS coffee and the whole Mate ritual keeps me coming back for more.

    Interesting. That is not what I have heard... I have heard that getting a residency which is not for studying (rentista) can take years even with a lawyer and that structuring and paperwork can be a nightmare. Just overstaying your visa and using something like a specialized lawyer.
