JAKARTA: Mengunjungi kedai es krim Italia Ragusa di Jakarta Pusat bagaikan melompat ke mesin waktu dan kembali ke masa lalu. Foto-foto hitam putih dari kedai es krim tersebut di tahun 1930-an dan 1940-an menghiasi dinding toko. Para pelanggan menikmati es krim mereka sembari duduk di kursi rotan tua dan meski cuaca Jakarta panas dan lembab, kipas angin yang berkarat membuat mereka tetap merasa sejuk. Di salah satu dinding toko terdapat foto para pendiri kedai es krim, kakak beradik Luigi, Vincenzo, Pascuale, dan Francisco Ragusa, yang merupakan warga negara Italia. Mereka mendirikan toko es krim tersebut pada tahun 1932. “Mereka penjahit di Jakarta dan kenalan mertua saya,” kata Sias Mawarni, yang kemudian mewarisi kedai es krim Ragusa, kepada CNA. Ia menceritakan bagaimana Luigi dan Vincenzo Ragusa mengunjungi kota Bandung kala itu dan bertemu dengan seorang wanita Belanda yang memiliki peternakan sapi. Mereka berpikir untuk membuat es krim dengan susu sapi … [Read more...] about Toko es krim jadul legendaris di Jakarta yang bertahan selama 88 tahun

A nearly 25 km stretch of the backwater channel in the Krishna estuary is flourishing with mariculture, for which it has emerged as a hub in Andhra Pradesh. High-value fish varieties like Asian sea bass and Indian pompano are being successfully cultivated here.

Kindly Share This Story:Tanzania has spent more than six months trying to convince the world it has been cured of the coronavirus through prayer while refusing to take measures to curb its spread. However, dissent is mounting, along with deaths attributed to “pneumonia”, with even a politician in semi-autonomous Zanzibar admitting he has the virus. “Covid-19 is killing people and we see a lot of cases but we cannot talk about the disease,” said a doctor in a public hospital in Tanzania’s biggest city Dar es Salaam, who like many asked not to be named for fear of reprisals. Tanzanian President John Magufuli has continually played down the seriousness of the virus even as neighbouring countries shut borders and implemented curfews and lockdowns.
