Where have all the traffic jams gone??




Today I set out with husband on a mission: to find and film a traffic jam .... (why is another matter) but the forces were conspiring against us. And it began at 7.30 this morning. Cars were behaving in an orderly fashion and they were not out in their hordes by the school gate outside our front door. Oh well, never mind we'll catch the rush to work after breakfast, so off we drove, towards the nightmare on Wadi Sakra Street - and lo and behold, no cars! It was like a flashback to the 1990s. The same in Rabia, Fifth circle, Sport's City Roundabout, the Interior Ministry Circle in Jebel Hussein and we found an orderly line of non-tail-gating cars along the dual carriageway from Sport's City to the Regency Hotel - unbelievable !!! We then found NO cars on the junction between Rabia and Mecca Street (proof in the photo above) and found a mini jam that lasted all of three seconds near the Amra Hotel roundabout ... ??? ... so we gave up and went looking for donkeys in Madaba instead. And found them! Phew, that was my September 11th, how was yours? J Posted by Picasa

Well, J, it took me half an hour this morning to get from the 5th to just before the 4th circle. And Ras al Ain was packed. Maybe the roads were traffic free because of all the royal visitors to this country! T

It appears that I should have you come with ME to work. I always end up with traffic jams. Of course, there's usually a police officer involved ;). Love your blog...
