2009 – After the latest economic crash McDonald’s decided to close it’s doors in Iceland, so this date marks the last day McDonald’s actually worked on this north Atlantic island.

A man named Hjortur Smarason bought a hamburger and french fries for a souvenir. As the meal did not rot over a period of exactly three years, Smarason donated the meal to the National museum of Iceland, that kept it for a year. Now the meal is displayed in the Bus Hostel Reykjavik, with a live video stream to check out if the famous hamburger and french fries are still intact.
