Golden M

wherever you go, a golden M will be around. usually easy to spot from highways. sometimes more hidden; when i did an internship in the USA years ago, the canteen of the university housed a mc donalds, i found that very odd. while driving around boston today, we found a walmart. and this walmart had a mcdonalds. the golden M as entrance to your calorie infested food,  was somehow appealing to me.... why dont more mc donalds restaurants have an M like this? i never saw it before!
anyways, the walmart was an interesting experience of (a part of) american culture... it was my first time going to a walmart, finally!! when waiting for my visa, last year, i stumbled upon this website, where people post pictures of "interesting-walmart-clientele", and that made me wonder..... should i really.... ;)
unfortunately, i was once again too shy to take my own pictures that certainly could have been added to this site....

Exactly!! I live in a small city, Igualada, near from Barcelona. All the people waiting for the weekend to go to the golden M...

Ha,ha,ha, those photo's on the website are really interesting. The entrance with the M is very clever. Here are many Mac's in old city centres in the most beautiful historic buildings. So sad to see.
