Mr Nippier

I continued to be surprised by the Hemglass industry. I arrived back at my apartment after work on the 8th of December to hear the familiar "doo-be-doo-be-doo" melody enticing people to come out and buy icecream even though the temperatures were approaching zero degrees. Here's a photo of the truck in the darkness.

I guess other people weren't expecting a visit from the icecream van either - the van had to come to an abrupt halt because there was a car parked on the road in front of the apartment block, right in the path of the van. Thankfully, the endless "doo-be-doo-be-doo"s finally caught the attention of the car owner, who moved the car so that the van could bring its cold treats to more people in the area.
