McDonalds in Havana?

Didn't notice it, but didn't know
it had been there. Maybe next
time I go. There are several
fast-food outlets open at the
depot 24-7, a Pain de Paris,
the joint venture between
Cuba and a French company.

I've been there three or four
times and never noticed any
ghosts of McDonalds...

When you were at the bus station, did you happen the notice the half
completed, half ruined, total surrealist construction of the of  a
McDonald's.  The golden arches are there, old style, with I think a red and
white tile facade on the box shaped serving area.  Never could track down
the whole story.  Assumed it was started prior to 1/1/59 and suspended soon

It makes quite an impression when you first stumble upon it.

If you can find out the real deal on it, I would appreciate it.
