Weekly Photo Challenge: Alphabet

McDonald's Sign
Location: Eger, Hungary
The golden ‘M’ of McDonald’s has become one of the most recognizable symbols of American culture. I find it comforting that it’s all over the world. Wherever I travel, I look for the familiar sign and pay it a visit. The food tastes the same, of course. But I don’t go there for the food. I go there for the restroom.

Restrooms vary from country to country. Since it’s taboo to discuss toilet etiquette in public, use of any of these restrooms is done at your own risk and by following strict standards of conduct. In addition, they aren’t as clean as you would expect (even if there’s a charge to get in) and sometimes smell so bad that only the desperate can find relief there. At McDonald’s, you can rest assured that the facilities are much, much better.

    I whole heartedly agree that McDonald’s great service to the world is clean bathrooms. I seek them out whenever I’m far afield and need a loo. Big, international chain hotels are another option.
