Yummy ice cream

Ice cream carts are a common site driving along the streets in Thailand. They are motorcycles with a side car in which the ice cream is stored. A large parasol covers both. The people in the neighborhood are drawn to the cart by a catchy tune which can be heard many streets away. Not every day can we take indulge in this sweet treat but last month all the girls and mothers were in luck and could choose their favorite flavor. They enjoyed the treat together on the veranda.
It is also good to know that this ice cream man lives in our neighborhood, therefore we are also supporting a neighbor with his business. Since we have his telephone number, we can make an appointment with him any time we want to have an ice cream. Such a temptation!
