Guess what? We ate at McDonald’s in Turkey, too.
Not much to say about this one except that we used the trip to McDonald’s as an excuse to go a little farther from our hotel in Sultanahmet. We rode the metro to the Kanyon Mall and planned to take in a movie, too, but the ticket prices were pretty high and nothing was starting soon, so we just did our McDonald’s thing instead. The restaurant was so crowded (and obviously trendy) that we weren’t sure we’d even get a table at first.
And dang it! This is the third week in a row I’ve posted a McDonald’s video with audio problems. It’s a really good thing this sort of stuff doesn’t bother me. This time, it wasn’t the fault of the video camera; what you’re hearing is what it picked up in a very noisy restaurant. No, the fault lies in that little microphone you can see on the table with the red record light. The red record light that lets us know it’s recording. The red record light that has nothing to do with whether or not the recording will eventually be saved to the micro-SD card inside. It’s only happened once or twice so far, but sometimes the mic (a Zoom H1) “crashes” (for lack of a better word.) Oh, well. At least I don’t have to type up subtitles this time.
