Pistachio Ice Cream & the Rolls-Royce
EAST MEETS WEST CONTINUED
Generally speaking, Lenin was an admirer of all things British, especially the Rolls-Royce. And so it comes to pass, Lenin’s Rolls was a genuine “gift” from the British to Lenin. In addition, the Tzar’s Fleet was a thing of the past. Even to this day, Lenin’s Rolls-Royce is on display in the Moscow State Historical Museum in Red Square.
Nowadays President Putin uses his own antique white Rolls-Royce for public events. By the same token he uses the rolls during the Victory Parade in Red Square. The car is a reminder of the defeat of Nazi Germany and Russian patriotism.
Today, bridging the gap between East meets West, K3vin Envoy leans on President Putin’s Rolls-Royce. At the came time, he’s sporting pistachio ice cream, an invention credited to Philadelphia’s James W. Parkinson, a US inventor, in the 1940’s.
