My mom went to Europe some months ago for her "Winter Vacation" (Go mom!), and, how I am, I started to read Tips for Travel to Chile (My country). It's fun because you get to know all the thingies you never imagine it was typical just for you. And this is one of those: The travelers tips always talk about "la once" (It's the equivalent of Tea Time here). Ok, probably is called differently in other countries, why not? And I finish learning Chile is probably, one of the last countries which still eat something between Lunch and Dinner O.o.
So, I want to know, Do you eat something between Lunch and Dinner? How is called if you do?
Ours is called Once (Eleven) because, long before my time, the miners couldn't drink liquor (They still can't) in the mines. So, they mixed Brandy (Aguardiente, acording to Word Reference is an special kind, but, it's a liquor) with Hot Water and Tea. When asked what they were drinking, they answer "Once" (Eleven) as a code, because "Aguardiente" has eleven letters.
