Sent to me by my most faithful of correspondents, a fun read about Durian fruit.

Hi Rogov,

I'm just back from a trip to New York and you'll be interested to know that at the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory at 65 Bayard Street they have Durian ice cream. I passed in favor of the green tea ice cream.

Just curious....did you have a moment to catch the aroma of the durian ice cream? Wondering if it was with or without the stink....

Did not catch the aroma of it. I should have asked for a taste. A friend and I were wondering if it was made from the real fruit, or a powder, or whatever. I think it's very difficult to ship durian. Most airlines won't allow it on their planes. It's not allowed in many hotels or other public places. I have to believe it was toned down to some degree. But in Chinatown, who knows? Next trip I'll try it and report.
