Whats in a Name, Pokhara, Nepal, June 2014

Coincidence or not...

Visitors here, particularly from the west, will undoubtedly notice quite a few familiar names. So, not only do the Nepalese practise discriminatory pricing but seek to capitalise on some well known brand names - PC World, McDonalds and Starbucks, just a few of the names being banded around the place. It may of course just be coincidental, but wandering around here and looking at the grubby signs, one cant but help suspect some down right plagiarism going on. Personally, I'm not effected but I think Bill Gates might not be amused to learn of his latest software on sale in a posh department store for less than £1!
