Dirty Ice Cream on a Tuesday Afternoon

 

Saw this dirty ice-cream cart parked along Timog while walking back to work from lunch at Behrouz.  Remarkably, after all these years, dirty ice-crea, has remained the same.  The jeepneys plying the polluted streets of the metro may have loss some of its color and glamour but the dirty ice-cream carts are as colorful as ever.  The ice-cream is still as good as ever—sugary sweet and as colorful as the cart. Bright yellow for cheese, deep violet for ube, and a pale brown for mocha.  Scooped on cone, cup, or bread, it’s still the perfect respite from the heat  or best ending for a meal.  Me? Every lick of the ice-cream brings back childhood memories of playing out in the streets.
