In Colombia, McDonald's Delivers

You might think it very tourist-American of me to write about McDonald's in other countries, but I think the fact that McDonald's delivers in Colombia is newsworthy. I had assumed that the United States was on the cutting edge of sedentary over-consumption of calories, but I'm afraid we have fallen behind. The learner has become the master.

I was thinking it might be cool to pick something strange that is only on local menus, but having to order over the phone put the brakes on that plan for the time being. I stuck with a classic, the Quarter Pounder with cheese combo. You can't go wrong with that. There's actually a location extremely close to Angelica's house, so it didn't take long at all for the food to arrive.

The box everything came in was pretty serious about not accepting the food if the seal was broken. It's the symbol of the trust shared by myself and Ronald.

The fries came in a little box so that they didn't spill everywhere in transit. The Spanish is "Like in McDonald's, but in your house".

Speed holes so you can eat faster.

Dessert was something from the supermarket. Arroz con leche is rice pudding with cinnamon as far as I am concerned.

I just got back from the Incan ruins of Peru Monday evening, so I've got some coverage of that brewing. Stay tuned.
