Aldo's Gelateria Italiana

.
After a hot afternoon visit to Susita National Park we dig volunteers stopped our convoy of three vehicles at a famous ice cream place near the Jordan River.
.
And luckily for James' Weekend Reflections, Janet appears reflected in the glass.
Janet is a Protestant minister serving a church in Ohio who fulfilled her dream of working at an excavation.
.
There were more fancy flavors on the other side.
A hard choice! But I never pass up coconut if I can find it.
.
The Hebrew sign says "Glidaria Italkit."
That would be a translation of the chain's name, Aldo's Gelateria Italiana.
.
Whatever you call it, the ice cream was cold and sweet on a hot day.

No hot days here, 10 degrees with rain. But we wouldn't mind an icecream as well, chocolate for Mandy, and cherry for me.

This is such a typical scene in an ice-cream store...intense contemplation on the possible choices! I like the girl in the black and white with her fingers on her chin...hmmm...which shall I choose?
Great reflection from a sharp eye!

Sara said...

I'll take a double chocolate, please!

Will you show any photos of the dig area? And, can you tell us the period that the dig was into? Do they tell you much about the dig, or do they just use the free labor? Or, do you pay them for the privilege to join the dig?

Great photos, Dina!

I love Janet's finger...pointing down at a flavor.

I'll take vanilla with lots of carmel poured over it.

Jaz said...

Nice, I could see the reflection of Janet on the glass...

I was always dreaming to be ice-cream seller. But my fate was protecting me:-)))

Dina said...

They do look tasty!

James said...

It took me a little while to notice your reflection because I was so interested in the yummy gelato. :)

This is a very tasty post! :)

Hilda said...

Ohhh, that is tempting even lactose-intolerant me! Something with mint please…

Chuck Pefley said...

Wonderful! You definitely had the right idea!! Looks like pistachio in the front and perhaps nutella toward the back? I love gelato!!

VP said...

Gelateria is female in Italian so it would be Gelateria Italiana, but I have seen worse Italian venues. The important thing is that the ice cream is good, which I have no reason to doubt! Chocolate and stracciatella for me...
