Ali S. Novruzov's blog from Azerbaijan, but also sharing news from the wider region, the world and the virtual life. Since 2008.
Excellent photo -- somehow I hadn't realized O had gotten to Baku...
Wondering when this was--perhaps the same trip where he had that little "incident" in Perm? http://rt.com/prime-time/2008-11-10/Obamas_adventures_in_Russia.html
Yes, Obama took a tour of former Soviet Union with Senator Lugar in August 2005, to check the implementation of some agreement between Russia and U.S. regarding nukes. They have been to Russia, Ukraine and Azerbaijan. Here is a comprehensive article about their visit.
Oh, so that's where he got the money for the most expensive election campaign! :)))
No, he didn't ask "why do the doctors only make $700 a year," or "why did you guys bash the heads of peaceful demonstrators?" He asked, "why aren't there more McDonald's?" Well, we know why state employees are paid so low and why the cops are so brutal, but the question remains, why is there only one McDonald's in Azerbaijan? survey: a) because Armenia has none. b) because nobody outside of downtown Baku can afford a cheeseburger. c) because there is no McMutton on the menu.
Ah, I recall all that talks about Barack Obama's McDonald's murmur in Baku! Some of my friends were outraged when they heard that Obama nominated himself for the President - look at this guy, when he was in Baku, he was lobbying for McDonald's!But now Obama should feel satisfied - we have at least four McDonald's in Baku ;)
I wouldn't count out that McMutton--though obviously I haven't been to Baku ;)--McDonald's varies its menu depending on the country. For instance, India has no hamburgers. Here's a sampling of alternative fares: http://bit.ly/6LP5AO. And, as a commenter says, in Israel they have the McShwarma, which is lamb.All of these items look superior to the American menu, sadly...
In Baku, they have McLavash - introduced this Christmas ;)
So can we thank Obama for Mc Lavash and 3 additional locations?
It seems he also follows up ;)
