    Por estos días en la zona de la Capital y cercanas de Argentina (como en mi ciudad, La Plata) está cayendo granizo con demasiada frecuencia - destrozando vidrios, persianas, techos de autos, etc.

    Ya que estamos, prefiero hablar de el helado granizado! what's the English for it?

    Hey Laura

    Since grano means a grain or particle I guess garnizado would mean "broken into grains or particles", so helado granizado would be frozen particles...which is a lengthy way of saying we call it "hail".

    jejej, Vicnte, you are funny. I think Laura is talking about this wonderful drink, we also enjoy in Spain:

    Well, OK...so how are we to know what drink it is if Laura doesn't give us the ingredients. It could be a glass of frozen lemonade.

    hi, vicente... I don't know if you know what "granizado" ice cream is here... it's basically cream ("crema americana", we call it, BTW) mixed with tiny pieces of chocolate... you can also have "dulce de leche granizado", "chocolate granizado" and "menta granizada" (varying of course the base cream). hmmmmmm... I'm going to the ice-cream shop and brb! hahaha

    BTW, I remembered I didn't mention we also say "cayó piedra" ( = graniz&#243, an expression we also use as a greeting, to make fun at someone who had been absent for a long time, or who doesn't visit often...

    Laura, if you like ice cream (I do, too) you would not BELIEVE how many different flavors and mixtures they have here. Everything you mentioned and maybe a hundred and thirty-eight thousand more!

    So, of course, I like plain old vanilla!

    vicente, we DO have many different flavors and combinations... I was just mentioning the "granizado" varieties... I love chocolate (plain, bitter, white, with almonds, with cherries...)

    it's a deal: send me a sample from there and I'll send you some from here to check which one is best, ok?

    Deal!!

    I didn't mean to imply that our ice cream business is better than your ice cream business. I know that the people of La Plata are a fairly advanced civilization.

    definitely a different thing, exx! though it looks tasteful, too... but it's not icecream! (I wanted to show you a picture, but couldn't find a good one. sorry!)
