Speeding Taxi

Few weeks ago I was in Qatar attending a conference. I stayed in one of the top hotels which was a bit expensive when compared with the prices in the surrounding countries.  I noticed, without exception, that taxi drivers in Qatar are speeding as if they are in a race. The way they change lanes and accelerate is unnecessary, and when you ask them to slow down they will respect your wish but will go back to their speeding routine as if it is an old habit they can not drop.

    that’s funny, i guess people change since they have the biggest racing ring in the gulf region, i guess people just pre-practice on the roads first, i was in qatar for few days, and i noticed this as well, but here’s the catch i dont know if you went shopping but i realized that everybody smells like “machboosh laham” i dont know maybe i was hungry that day.

    • Yes I went for shopping and I noticed the smell, however, I have to say that the shops are clean and the shopping areas are organized very well.
