In 1991, my ex wife Nancy (pictured below) and I only saw one McDonalds in Paris and I snapped a photo as a curiosity. There are now over 800 McDonald's in France, and José Bové (the farmer turned activist who in an act of civil disobedience drove a tractor into a McDonalds) aside, the French just love McDo (pronounced Mac Dough) as it's called in France. The first McDonalds in France was built in 1979 and is located in Strasbourg's Les Hall shopping center.
Europeans, particularly French, have been buying more property in Florida in recent months as well. “The real attraction here is cheap, cheap, cheap waterfront real estate. These buyers look at this and think it will never be as affordable again.” I think I may have to put an ad in France to attract more of these Americanized Frenchmen :-) I know in my area, there are already quite a few French Canadians who have bought winter home condos. Parlez vous Francais?
That's me by the Stravinsky Fountain in Paris.
A French McBaguette. No need to carry French bread under your arm any more. I wonder what wine goes best with this?
