Meet John, Panamanian Icecream Maker

“I would never want to do anything else.”

An iceman is selling water ice to the schoolkids crowding the French Square in Panama City after class. The refreshment is served in a plastic cup instead of a cone. The ice is just scratched from a block of ice, and it is flavored with sirup. Every day, the kids queue up in front of the one man business, and the arrival of the kids conjures a smile upon the iceman’s face. He loves his profession: “I would never want to do anything else.”

There is no way to just walk past the man without noticing his broad smile – just like there is no way to walk across French Square without noticing Ana.
