Day Twenty: Badabababahhh. I’m lovin’ it.

June 19, 2011
Happy Father’s Day!
Breakfast was scheduled to be at 8 a.m. but just kidding guys- so I get to sleep in until 11:something. score. Brandy, Hannah, Claire, Kaitlin, and I tried to go to the botanical gardens at 2 p.m., but instead ended up on a bus that runs an alternate route. Curse you bus #25, you even fooled our host mom. But we did get to see the Chateau d’Angers as an alternative. After our visit to the chateau and a bit of wandering around Angers, we make our first stop at a European McDonald’s. I order a KitKat bar McFlurry et un petite eau. The verdict: the KitKat bar balls were okay but didn’t taste like any KitKat I’ve ever had… but the ice cream was great.  Side note: McFlurrys do come with a syrup topping at no extra charge but they are not actually ‘flurried’ for you. Angers’s McDonald’s is the nicest McDonald’s I’ve ever been in: it has three levels, its own bakery, wi-fi, and bathrooms (that require a code from your receipt). The menu is a touch healthier (less sodium), offers some new menu items (like wedge potato fries), and is cheaper compared to ordering in a restaurant (but still more expensive than American McDonald’s menus). Upon our return, we had cucumbers, mussel salad, radishes, salad, an omelet, cheese, grapefruit, walnuts, and hazelnuts for dinner.
