this is globalization at its worst..its a shame they cant have some indigenous beverage to be more representative of the local culture... Hey what do I know, ive never been to Pakistan..maybe Pepsi is rampant in all parts of the country!
The US is not the sole super power..Pepsi and Coke are, also!
P.S. I love it when i go to Mexico and when I am thirsty, they have all kinds if tasty, refreshing and colorful soft drinks to choose from.. they are actually starting to import some of these to the States.
If i fly PIA, I am going to have a hot cup of tea(with milk), an impositional request on any US carrier.
