From Golden Gate to Golden Arches - We've come a long way, baby??? (PVDP on Vacation)

The splendid Golden Gate ("Zlatna Vrata") or Triumphal Arch of Sergius, Pula, Istra - Hrvatska/Croatia
(1 August 2010)
The Golden Arches of McD's, in Šibenik, Dalmacia - Hrvatska/Croatia
(7 August 2010)
(Yes, we did eat at McDonald's TWICE - the first time, to have my Croatian friends try the food -- ratings were low on burgers and fries, very high on strawberry sunday -- and the second time, for the same reason we eat fast food here - convenience when hungry. The restaurant just opened the week before we got there and is much more stylish and posh than the US ones. The servers were just wonderful.)

I m afraid I cant compare the two.
Prefer the top one.

The top arches are definitely better looking and will and have lasted longer! As for the golden ones, I treat myself from time to time, but always feel awful afterwards, so why....?

When I say the arches, I mean the arches, not the restaurant. Did they serve beer?
