  1. It doesn’t really blend in does it? A while back I saw a McDonalds in a small historical town in Germany. I was surprised how well they had managed to blend in with the traditional buildings. This is not quite the same thing though…

  2. Maybe this should bother me more but it does not seem to. The Starbucks in the Forbidden City did not faze me either, though I did not stop in to have an Americano. There were plenty of other shops and street peddlers to contend with (to ward off as I recall, they were so pushy)there as I recall who probably saw Starbucks more as aggressive competition than a sacrilege. The image is gaudy and appalling. I agree. But sadly it seems rather fitting to a culture that has plastered Mickey Mouses and Donald Ducks and Winny the Poohs and Snoopys all the place with no concern to royalties. I think Ronald here has seized a tacky victory.
