Expat Learnings

Things I’ve learned as an American expat in the UKoGBaNI #24

Ice cream trucks

Ice cream trucks still come ’round the neighborhood in the summer.

Yep, they sure do, playing their creepy music and driving slowly down neighborhood roads. They even troll through the streets of central London in high tourist areas like near Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. Although the UK ice cream trucks (which are technically always vans and never trucks) don’t look exactly like the ice cream trucks in the States (nor do they sell Bomb Pops… Americans with their bombs…), seeing these ice cream trucks always brings back fond memories of my childhood.

Apologies for my finger in the shot below. I was too busy trying to not get shoved off the sidewalk and into oncoming traffic to pay attention to what I was actually taking a photo of.
