Description
GELATERIA ISLANDA IS A CHILDHOOD DREAM.
THE DREAM OF A CHILD WHO ASKED FOR AND RECEIVED AN ICE-CREAM MAKER AS A GIFT FOR HIS EIGTH BIRTHDAY, AND WHO NEVER STOPPED CREATING EVERY POSSIBLE ICE-CREAM FLAVOR FOR HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS' JOY.
A CHILD WHO GREW UP AND WENT TO WORK IN A BANK, AND ONE DAY DECIDED TO QUIT BEING AN ADULT, SO THAT HE COULD MAKE HIS CHILDHOOD DREAM COME TRUE.
