    • In my opinion, the connection between the three pictures is that in Bolivia, the president thought to do away with Coca~Cola and Macdonalds because they are bad for the health. The reason is because they went crazy and they believed that the planets were a signal to stop having Macdonalds and Coca~Cola.

  2. The connection among these three images is amazing (McDonald’s, Coca-Cola and the Bolivian flag). The reason why is the Bolivian gobernment has decided to cut off ties with Coca-Cola and McDonald’s to preserve their culture and health, this measure was implemented since 21 of December at the same time with the Maya calendar. However, some hours later the gobernment rectified this information. This news dated on the 1st of August of 2012.

  3. On December 21, 2012 the Coca-Cola company was expelled by the Bolivian government because this drink contains a lot of harmful substances for our health like chemicals that could generate heart attacks and cancer. Bolivia is the second South American country to expel this drink from his country.

    After 14 years in Bolivia, McDonald’s had to close the eight restaurants that were open in the three principal cities. The company left the country because it couldn’t adapt to the food tradition of Bolivia and they couldn’t change the mentality of the population. Bolivia is the first country in which McDonald’s went bankrupt.

  4. The flag of Bolivia, the drink Coca Cola and McDonald’s have in common that Bolivia wanted to expel these two companies from the country, because the president said these products were bad for people because they could harm their health. But after this, the Bolivian government said that this is a confusion of the media who misinterpreted it and Coca Cola won’t leave the country.

  7. The relationship between the three images, is that in Bolivia (flag) you can not get any product from Coca Cola, McDonalds or any other major US multinational, since December 2012. McDonald went bankrupt before they kicked him out. There is even a documentary about the failure of McDonalds in Bolivia. These measures were taken by Bolivia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, David Choquehuanca.

    • The flag corresponds to the one of Bolivia. Coca-Cola and McDonald´s left Bolivia. The expulsion of Coca-Cola has coincided with the end of the Mayan calendar and the festivities that were celebrated. McDonald´s broke in Bolivia after 14 years trying to enter the Bolivian culture, deeply rooted in traditional gastronomy.

  10. In Bolivia McDonald closed all the franchises why they didn`t have the expected welcome. After 13 years McDonald returned to the country since its closing in 2002. And on December 21st Coca-Cola was expelled by the government, because it wasn`t considered good for the health of Bolivians and also for the Mayan calendar that says capitalism must to end. I think Bolivians are very aware of health and it is very important and we should take an example and take care of ourselves more.

Due to this McDonalds had to close its 7 fast food restaurants. The reasons that led to the expulsion of both companies are also due to “health and culture” reasons.

  16. The government of Bolivia expelled the Coca-Cola company “to celebrate the end of capitalism”. The same day, the McDonalds company closed down because it hadn’t caused the nutritional influence they wanted.
    Because of the end of Coca-Cola, a new drink called “Micochinche” appeared. One cause of McDonalds’ closure was that its potato chips had nothing to do with the famous potatoes of Bolivia.

    Another relationship between the first 2 images is that it’s believed that Coca Cola is made with coca leaves and a part of the Bolivian economy comes from the legal coca plantation.

    McDonald’s left Bolivia in 2002 because it has losses. The reason is obvious, the people of the country hate fast food they think it isn’t a good meal. McDonald’s should have studied the country before building its restaurants.

  22. In Bolivia, the first McDonald was opened in 1997 but It was the first country where it failed.
    The eight establishments that were opened in Bolivia were removed 14 years later, because the country wanted to preserve it’s gastronomic culture, preferring their traditional food,
    instead of the expensive and unhealthy McDonald’s burgers.
    This leads me to talk about the Coca-Cola Company in Bolivia:
    This drink was withdrawn from Bolivia due to it’s content of substances harmful to health and that could generate heart attacks, cancer and strokes.
    Anyway, the habitants were already addicted, so after a while Coca-Cola returned to the country.
    Also Bolivia has the highest average of liters of Coca-Cola per person.

    The Bolivian chancellor implemented this measure the last 21 of December of 2012. It is curious that this measure was implemented with the Maya calendar so it was a good reason to celebrate it.
