The global effect of America is evident in the way its capitalist consumer icons spread across the globe. These are just a few images of businesses you so often see in the US. But these pictures are from 7000 miles away from NYC, in Seoul, Korea.
It is not really surprising, since Korea has for long been the base of the US 37th, with about 35,000 troops stationed there. This is since the days of the Korean war in 1953.
Check out the businesses. At least you are assured that if you have an American palate, you will not go hungry in Korea. !
