Arches All Over the World

Congrats, CLAMers - everyone made it to their respective fields!

I have enjoyed reading your blogs, viewing your pics, and seeing your engagement with the cultures of your host countries. (My last couple of attempts to respond were foiled by the "word verification" being down. - Also, hey Melissa, your blog seemed to disappear. What's the deal?)

So... here is your first Group Blog Challenge: McDonaldization!
  • Go to Mcdonalds.com and visit the McDonald’s USA Site, as well as the site of your host country.
  • Visit, if possible, a McDonald's in your host country.
  • Compare and Contrast – what things are similar? What things are different? What similarities surprise you? What differences surprise you?

Blog about these things. Feel free to post photos and graphics, too. Read the blogs of your fellow CLAMers and respond. This should make for a very interesting collection of observations!

Feel free to email me with questions...

This is an incredible cultural awareness assignment! I may have to adopt this one for one of my classes for students who are abroad for a semester. (Of course they would have to do it in Spanish!)

Mais Oui, Monsieur Burl!

Wait, is that Spanish?
