I’d Hear the Buzz

Kelly K.

There is a kind of Paraguayan maté my mom used to make, with roasted orange peel, tea leaves, water and milk. It is called cocido. We would take it with these broken round cookies. Every time I’d smell it at home, it meant a relative had arrived from Paraguay. I would wake up, smell the maté, and I’d hear the buzz of everyone speaking Guaraní.
