Globalisation’s Child: Cafe’s 

Hipster Boutique Cafes in my neighbourhood in Muscat. I still prefer my Karak Chai for 10 percent of the cost of my double expresso shot machiatto though. Globalisation as I quip often, comes in various shades, rather weird. This picture is so geographically mundane that it could have been taken in Mumbai, Jakarta or elsewhere. Joining the global economic grid comes with such creature comforts. 
The steep pricing structures will however be a dampener for individual entrepreneurs trying to bring in the Seattle Artisanal Coffee Culture to the Gulf as this region has an independent coffee shop culture typically south Asian and Turkish.
