My second to last host family here in India loves ice cream. Baskin-Robbins ice cream, in fact.
Maybe they don’t really love Baskin-Robbins and they just wanted to give us a taste of home. I can’t really be sure. But it was 100 rupees (less than 2 dollars) well spent on a cookies ‘n’ cream milkshake, I can tell you that much.
One of my favorite parts of this outing (apart from the milkshake, I mean) was that my new host dad, a devout Hindu who doesn’t drink alcohol, is a big fan of classic rock. The song that was playing when we hopped in his car for a night tour of the city and ice cream? AC/DC’s You Shook Me All Night Long. Did I sing along? I can’t even believe you had to ask.
