So I broke the one rule most people give to Americans while studying abroad. I am not going to try to cover it up, or lie about it, I will just come right out with it. So, the other night I went to the McDonalds in Salamanca….. but wait!!! Let me explain!….
I was actually doing an intercambio with Lourdes (her picture is in my ¡fiesta fiesta! post). Well it just so happens that she LOVES McDonalds, and wanted to go there for ice cream, and I didn’t want to break the flow of our great spanish practice so I followed her lead.
But I did notice some interesting differences about the spanish mcdonalds. #1 It is kind of expensive here! a big mac was almost 7 euros, which equals about $10. I have no idea what big macs cost in the US but that seemed like a lot. #2 They don’t do free refills! I am also guessing they don’t sell 44 oz drinks either haha.
But it was kind of nice to walk in and smell that familiar scent of high cholesterol french fries and fatty burgers. I felt like I was home for a bit. Just a one time thing, won’t be doing it again… unless another spaniard invites me! lol
