Frío frío vendor
A frío frío is pretty much like slush ice. The vendor has a big block of ice and something to shred enough ice to fill your cup (can be 2 sizes), and then you choose the flavor you want from the bottles and he pours it in your glass. Its name means "cold cold" and it's usually a cheap way to refresh yourself when it's hot. I used to have a lot of those when I was growing up so this picture brought back some good memories.
Frío fríos can be found everywhere in the country but I made the tip here because that's where I took the picture at.
Edit Apr 2009: a video of a friero (frío frío vendor) making me a frío frío can be seen on Youtube.
