Eid Mubarak

Today is Muslim Christmas, so everyone is presumably off work.

Despite this a fast-flowing metallic river of traffic is still coursing down Sheikh Zayed Road. Forget the Creek - this eight-lane superhighway (twelve if you count the hard shoulders) is now the true conduit of business and commerce in the Emirate. It is also a gauge of the Three Stages of Dubai Residency.

1. Newly Arrived: Shock and disbelief as a mad dishdash zips past you in a blacked-out Lexus via the hard shoulder

2. 3-6 Months: Apathy at the above

3. 6 Months: Getting so pissed at the dishdash managing just 160kmph in an 80 zone, you scrape the central reservation to overtake him
