This is McDonald’s in my home town of Härnösand, Sweden … or was, rather! Yesterday morning, it all went up in flames. When I woke up, yesterday morning, I heard the characteristic, little sound from Facebook Messenger, on the iPhone. It was a friend, back home, who thought I should know this 🙂 so I knew before many of my friends who actually live there! The wonders of modern technology again! If they’d written me a letter, I would have known in about a week.
This picture was taken, probably in 1999 and I think it opened perhaps 1998. At least somewhere around that time, I’d borrowed the camera at work.
I liked our McDonald’s. It was nice to sit outside on that wharf, in the summertime, and have coffee and a chocolate muffin. Good coffee at a reasonable price.
McDonald’s been around, in Sweden, for I don’t know how long … like in most other countries, but we didn’t get one until late 90’s. I hope it will be re-built!
Yesterday was a calm and cool day, when we just lounged around and relaxed. Still very, very windy after the storm. Neither of us felt like a heavy meal so I just brought out some shrimp of the freezer and made shrimp sandwiches. Didn’t have a lemon, but apart from that, the main ingredients for a traditional, Swedish, shrimp sandwich were there. I’d say you could get one of these in almost any food joint there … the quality might vary, they’re always expensive but popular.
To crown off a rather good day, there was Downton Abbey on TV. Two (!) hours. That was unexpected, but good, as usual. They said, afterwards, that next Sunday will be the season finale. Booo…! I must find something else on TV that I like.
Today is yet like a blank sheet of paper … waiting to be filled with something 🙂
