Culture clash


It's so interesting to see what's acceptable in other cultures. If US military commanders were photographed sitting in plush leather couches, they would be ridiculed. But in Iraq it's apparently acceptable. (Not that I think many Iraqis would feel comfortable making fun of the military if they thought otherwise.)

The photo was taken from the BBC News site.

I've never seen so many of those leather seats. Was this photo taken during a shopping expedition to Hoffman Koo's Furniture Gallery? Is that place still in business? (Just Googled it: no.)
