..Two days ago Charlie, my 15 year car the size of a boat, decided to have a heart attack. She stopped it Jebelat Habshi and refused to budge. I called my father for help, who, in 10 minutes was at the scene of the crime. Yet it's important to mention that, in my 10 minutes of waiting, three random gentlemen stopped to offer help. One of them even pushed my car to the side of the road.
Three weeks ago, in Dubai, my friend's car passed out. It took us around 45 minutes to find someone and convince them to recharge the battery.
There are a whole bunch of other reasons why this island of the insane is one of the most beautiful places to live, in spite of the socioeconomic disaster we're in, but that's for another day..
