Tale of Globalized meal

An egyptian student studying in Purdue, USA, got bored from working and decided to take a walk.
he put on his glasses made in Austria. He took his bicycle, he bought earlier from American market and found it was made in China, went to a Pakistani market where he bought:
1- a can of Egyptian Fava beans made in USA.
2- Mushroom soup made by Unilever India.
3- Lebanese bread.
He went back to his apartment, which he leased earlier from a Thai student. He took off his shirt his shirt made in Egypt and his shoes made in Italy.
and then made a quick meal using his kitchen tools made in China, Germany and Thailand.

This is the typical definition of globalization.
