Huh, clearly I have no sense of what’s important. (It’s never been a secret that I get sidelined by minutiae and pointless anecdotes.) I didn’t think McDonald’s opening in the Louvre was a big deal, but it’s being written about like crazy. Culture clash, sure.
I’m still bitter about the July I spent as a French exchange student when one of the grandmothers kept promising to take me to “McDo” (I never asked—she just assumed McDonald’s would be a treat for an American teenager) and brought me to a French fast food burger joint that totally wasn’t a McDonald’s at all. I wish I remembered the name or took photos, but I wasn’t in food blogger mode in ’89.
