my new blog sponsor

So here I am in the cool air-conditioned comfort of a restaurant that serves mousse au chocolat and drinks with loads of ice. The bathrooms are clean. It has Wi-Fi "gratuit et illimite." Best of all, I will encounter many more of these restaurants in my future. What a relief.

Welcome to McDonalds, may I take your order?

From lyon and le puy

It seems fitting to begin a pilgrimage by acquiring new vices--or cashing out on long held principles. After all, shouldn't a pilgrimage teach us about our imperfections? Or something like that? I don't know. Just find me the justification for defying my long held disdain of the Golden Arches.

I seem to remember complaining about how McDo seduces people into a routine of predictablity and normalcy while serving food of questionable quality and challenging the locally owned restaurants to stay competitive. Ahem.

After years of preaching and teaching against McDonalds, I have a feeling I'll be contributing to the negative aspects of globalization one air conditioned, mass produced chocolate mousse eating blog post at a time.

As long as you don't order the Big Mac, it doesn't count. Just remember - "Super Size Me!" That might strengthen your resolve.

Well, just this once, in your honor, I may partake of a Royale With Cheese as an act of solidarity...
