Internet Café

What do you have in mind once you heard a word ‘Internet Café’? A fancy café that has high speed internet connection? Or a room full of cubicles where each cubicle contains one PC with internet? Well yes, those are the normal so-called internet café looks like. But what I find in Makassar is pretty interesting, because it’s different.

In the Faculty of Social and Politic, there’s a free access of WiFi. It means you don’t need any network key to connect to the internet. This doesn’t happen in other faculties. In University of Bremen, we even have to register our laptop/ PC if we want to be able to access the internet in campus!

What makes it interesting, the place for hang out in Soc-Pol Faculty is decent cafés; or so called warung. These warungs are simple, selling meals or instant noodles, simple drinks like packaged tea, ice orange, instant coffee, and the place for sitting is only simple plastic chair or even old wooden bench.

Just take a look at this picture. These two guys are sitting on a decent wooden bench and put their laptops on a decent wooden table. At the background there are the warungs. It’s completely a contrast picture. Although the place is so descent, which mean for low economy-class people, but apparently the people who goes there isn’t from low class because they all have laptops. Isn’t that interesting?

Look at this video and see the how abnormal this internet café!
