Starbuck has a drink called Café Americano. The description under it says, “ Espresso and Hot Water.” No kidding! Such an insipid drink is named after us. It makes it sound like we have no imagination when it comes to enjoying life. That’s not true. We are busy working people. We don’t have the time to sit around in cafés like the French, especially in cafés with a name as Café Philosophi. It takes time for things to develop, coffee or thoughts, for now I am only glad that my Café Americano , espresso and hot water that is, does not spill on my lap while I am driving.

Is Cafe Philosophi same thing as the Socrates Cafe? I've never been to one, but I like their concepts: common people gathering together discussing philosophies related to current issues.
