This MacDonald's is located next to the Liberdade Metro station in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The menu is pretty much the same as in the United States. The Big Mac is called a Big Mac and french fries are McFritas. In the photo, notice the facade of the building is designed to look like an Edo period building. For a large city, there were not many fast food restaurants in Sao Paulo. MacDonald's is one of the few that I saw. (photo taken Feb. 2, 2008)
