Basel, Switzerland

As you might remember our last stop was in Dublin, Republic of Ireland, and the submitter of the photo was Pedro Vilas-Boas a friend of mine. Now we head to Switzerland, Basel, and the submitter is Pedro again.

He took this photo in the Marktplatz right in the Market Square of the city.

Have you been there? What do you think about it? =)

Lost and Found

Dear travellers I hereby launch a new section on this blog, the "Lost and Found".

I have received the following picture through our e-mail.

The user that sent the image would like to know if any of our visitors can identify the location of this restaurant and who might be the gentleman on front of it. The only leads that the sender has are that the picture was probably taken in The Netherlands in the years of 1975 or 1976.

Do you recognize it? Have you ever been there? Can you help us find it?

Please leave any information you might have on our comment box or send it by e-mail. Also don't forget to send your pictures from McDonald's restaurants around the world. The journey must go on!

McDonald's "World Events"

Sometime ago I received or saw this picture somewhere, unfortunately I can't remember where, so I apologize to its author.

I immediately thought that I should put it here in the blog, because it was quite funny. So I'm starting this category "McDonald's 'World Events'", where I'll put pictures like this one:

I think everyone has seen the picture in which this work is inspired. The original photo is named "Raising the flag in Iwo Jima<" and "is a historic photograph taken on February 23, 1945, by Joe Rosenthal. It depicts five United States Marines and a U.S. Navy corpsman raising the flag of the United States atop Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II."

So if you have pictures like this and think it should be on this blog, contribute! =)

Dublin, Republic of Ireland

From Italy to the Republic of Ireland.

These time it was a friend of mine, Pedro Vilas-Boas, that sent me these photos. He had gone in vacations to Dublin and decided to take some pictures of a local McDonald's restaurant to share with us.

Pedro told me that this restaurant is situated in the O'Connell Street, in the heart of Dublin, close to a Ireland's partial independence symbol, the building of the General Post Office.

He sent a couple more photos together with this one and this time I decided to add one more. I think it might be good to have not only the picture of the restaurant but a bit of the surrounding area, whenever possible.

And so here it is a picture of the said street:

Thank you for your contribution Pedro!

See you next time. Don't forget to send your pictures in! =)

Milan, Italy

Shhhh, don't make too much noise, because this has been so quiet that the pictures are sleeping...

Also I'm sorry for the spider webs, I know I should clean it more, but I've been lazy and lacking in pictures, so I haven't been around it.

But back to the subject. This time I'm posting a picture from a McDonald's restaurant in Milan, Italy. This one is in the Galleries "Vittorio Emanuele".

This picture was sent to me by a friend of mine who is a flight attendant at TAP Portugal.

You can also send me your pictures via e-mail. Don't let this blog die! Please... oh well, enough crying. =)

See you next time!

McDonald's FAIL Picture

I've been quite silent for some time, but I haven't received anymore pictures of McDonald's, so the blog will be idle.

Anyway today I received a link for a nice McDonald's FAIL Picture, and thought about sharing with you.

Taken from the . Thanks to JVale for sharing with me.

Warsaw, Poland

I know this blog has been a bit quiet lately, but my classes have started and I've been focused on that and other projects.

Anyway I still have some pictures stored that were sent by some friends that have been abroad, so I'll try to keep posting as regularly as possible.

The last post was about a restaurant in London and now we will travel east to the center of Europe, directly to Poland.

Shamelessly the picture that I'm posting was not sent by my friends in Poland but by a friend of mine of Portugal that has been there in September.

I'd told him not to forget to take pictures and he did not! Thank you Zé!

So here it is a picture of a McDonald's Restaurant in Warsaw.Have you been there? =)

See you next time!
