    From now on, I am only drinking at establishments that use Chimborazo ice.

    Thanks for link to the Ice Merchant. Cool film. All I kept thinking while watching it was — when do we get to the part where an American restauranteur or mixologist or chef discovers the ice, starts incorporating it into drinks/dishes, the trend takes off, poor Baltazar becomes rich Baltazar and figures out a more efficient system than using donkeys and friggin straw to get the goddamn ice off the mountain?

    I watched the whole 14 min or so even though I was supposed to be working. It makes you appreciate just how easy we have it in our world but also that things are changing all over the world and sometimes not always in a good way.

    The Ice Merchant was an interesting look at buggy whip manufacturers. It’s sad that an old trade is dying, but the world moves on. Baltazar’s children are better educated and better fed than he was. Progress is a good thing – people move (slowly, at times) out of poverty.

    Cheers for bringing this remarkable film to my attention, The Last Ice Merchant; very poignant, humbling and thought-provoking indeed. One of the highlights for me was the rather ancient and beautifully wrinkly old man enjoying the blackberry ice cream cone, made with the glacial ice.
