McDonald’s in Bolivia …

by on January 9, 2012

To the Editor:

Yes, Bolivia had fast food back in the late 1960’s and early 70’s. Markets selling fresh fruit, veggies, etc. were the center of life. A “fast food” lunch would include at least 5 courses: an appetizer, soup, the entree of the day, and a small dessert with a “cafecito.” It cost less than a dollar and filled me up. Saltenas (no “n” with a squiggly line above it) were a mid morning fast food served with fresh orange juice or banana juice. In the afternoon fresh bread was sold from near by earthen ovens with specialties like “cunape.” Fast food was available in near bus stops, markets, and the town square. Go Bolivia!
