93-year-old has cappuccino for first time

A 93-year-old Saudi man who tasted a cappuccino or the first time in his life said he loved it but could not pronounce the word.

Abu Abdullah, a mosque preacher, laughed when he was asked by his relative to say the word before pronouncing it as "kabashtini".

A YouTube film, published in 'Sada' newspaper and watched by thousands of social network viewers, showed the man lifted the cup with a shaking hand and had a sip. “It’s really nice. It’s the first time I have had this,” he said.
