Gone...but not for long!

Dear Loyal Passengers,

Al Ain Taxi is going abroad for a while and will return in September. Keep your eyes out for a white and gold Nissan Sunny driving around the UK over the summer, that'll be me.

See you in Autumn/Fall/Slightly Cooler Season (UK/US/UAE),

The Taxi x

Gosh, yours is almost as long as mine! The holiday, I mean.

Guess you must be a teacher of sorts? Or of anything, I s'pose...

Do Police officers in Dubai accept “Bribes” ?

Apparently, YES!

So this friend of ours was in a taxi being driven down to Sharjah, the cab guy skips a light at the Galadhari cross roads and changes three lanes in a go. The cab got pulled over and the Cops came over and wanted to arrest this guy. Not the Driver, but the passenger,(Brown passenger).

The cops asked him if he was drinking, (remember he was not in Sharjah yet, still a few hundred meters away from the border),


The guy freaked out so he offers a bribe, AED 1,800 that he happened to have in his pocket. And guess what, the Uniformed Dubai Police Officer accepts it and lets him go.
Now we understand that corruption is endemic in this region, however is it acceptable to fleece the underprivileged? Oh allk right this over paid brown guy we are taling about is not part of the ,”underprivileged”, but WTF? Well Dubai is progressing and ……

Dubai = a wanna be First world country?

Dubai = stereotypical Arab nation with nothing new to offer.


Regards,

Just a quick Yassus! from an internet cafe in Corfu Town where the taxi driving is even worse that in Al Ain (I'm joking of course, but it's pretty bad all the same!)
