Ice cream deserves its own post

The best ice cream in the world comes from a little metal cart in one of the main squares of Merida, the kind of cart you stay away from at first because you’re not sure if the food will make you sick.  It doesn’t.  What it does do is make you addicted.  Favorite flavors thus far, though I plan on further investigation, are mamey and cookies.  Mamey is a fruit I’ve never had before that’s very sweet and rosy and tastes like heaven.  And the cookie ice cream, well, you know what that is, but imagine actual entire crushed Oreos instead of puny flecs.  You get two giant scoops in a giant cone for two dollars.  But when I say cone, I’m not talking about the cardboard ice cream is served in at home.  These cones taste like cookies.

Last night I went downtown with a friend and purchased one of these wonders, took a seat at a free concert, and wondered if life could get any better.

    You are a brave girl, I don’t think I would have dared to eat anything from one of those carts. I still won’t even eat anything from the carts on State Street. That ice cream sounds really delicious though. I guess it would probably be worth the possible bout of food poisoning…speaking of which, this might be a silly question, but can you drink the tap water in Mexico? I thought I remembered hearing that’s a big no-no, but I might just be perpetuating some silly American germo-phob belief.

    Yeah… well I just had Fried Ice Cream flavored Ice Cream, So it was an ice cream flavored like itself in a different form. Your ice cream may be delicious, but mine is mind blowing. Flavored like itself…
