Big Mac Attack is a deal…

89 rubles (eighty-nine rubles = $1.78) is what it costs for a Big Mac yesterday in the local McDonald’s. 400 rubles is a fair meal for two at McDonald’s in Russia…

Then eating at Globus for two, nearby, runs about 400 rubles and that equates to about $8 give or take. Globus is a full meal deal and that is a deal, I am telling you. eating a meal like the photo below shows is much cheaper yet in the villages of Russia…

A strange understanding for people to grasps in America is that, Russians have a whole bunch more free cash than they do. It is not debt cash, but extra cash after paying for basics of life. The overhead of living is so much cheaper than in the U.S. that it really makes a difference on the quality and quantity of life…

You enjoy eating out? We do and the price is very good and thanks to the west, the price is getting better and better per dollar, all the time. I have to say, “I appreciate being able to eat all I can and not break $10 for the two of us…”

Then I have people tell me that in America you are looking at $4 to $5 Big macs, well I guess that is better than the $7 to $8 Big Macs in Norway…

Say what you want, but it is what matters to me and enjoying a good meal out, while talking about life and the future, then watching the people who shop in the stores, as they goi about normal life, is important. The Russian stores are packed and people are buying, buying, and buying…
