After the president's address on Afghanistan, I thought about this post written as part of a ongoing series on all things ice cream. When you focus in on one topic and keep peeling away the layers you can learn interesting things. Ice cream provides a lens into different cultures and societies. It also provides insights into class and gender differences as it relates to the space and place where and how ice cream is made, sold, and consumed.  For example, I came across a really interesting story done on NPR about ice cream in Jalalaba, Afghanistan.
