Now some of you may get offended thinking, "why the heck does she want to write about McDonalds when she's in Argentina, the land of amazing parillas and beef," but don't be. I just felt compelled to write about this because it illustrates how you truly can get anything delivered here in Buenos Aires.
We recently found out that I'm almost two months pregnant, yayyyy! And, as we all know, pregnant women can be very picky. I'm usually so good about eating healthy, with great places like TalloVerde to deliver organic veggies, and organic chickens, and good quality meats, but not on this day.
Yesterday was one of the suckiest days here in awhile. Rainy, cold - about 14 degrees celsius or about 58, and just not a good day to be out, especially when you are fighting a cold on no meds.
Unfortunately (for my husband), I decided that I wanted McDonalds of all things. Since we don't have a car, he would have had to ride his bike several blocks to fulfill my wishes. Several blocks in the rain, with the fall leaves now riddling the streets making it dangerous, and even more dangerous with the psycho drivers here.
Well my good friend Veronica, who lives in Recoleta, told me they now offered delivery but wasn't sure if it covered my area. So, I got on their website to pick what I wanted, and lo and behold, fortunately (for my husband), they now offer McEntrega, entrega meaning delivery, in our area. They provide the whole online, and even their McCafe, a nice little addition to Argentine McDonalds.
So I got on the phone, placed the pedido, and got the order on the way. It was here in twenty minutes, and I'm sorry, but .....boy was it good!
Anyway, this is just to illustrate that here in Buenos Aires, you really can get ANYTHING delivered. From pharmacy orders, to organic vegetables, to eggs, to pet food, to...well just about anything. It's a wonderful thing to have, and it's one of those things I'll have to add to my list of "What I love about Argentina."
