Dammam is a soul-less industrial city. Khobar is posher.

Bayouni coffee in Al-Khobar.

Like walking into a sixities time warp.

Cash register is a big wooden drawer and shop workers that look like extras in a Bogart movie...

Beautiful smelling coffee too.

Err... Scot? I think that is exactly what he means. Starbucks is so 1990s.

He is using "1960's" to signify "quaint" or "prehistoric" or "olde-worlde". These whipersnappers will NEVER understand what it was REALLY like !

(Oh God I have turned into an old bore just like my father before me !)
