New Taxis In Riyadh

There's a bunch of new taxi's cruising in Riyadh these days. I've caught a few. The smell of plasticky newness hangs in the cars internal air. And plastic still covers their seats.

Most of the cars are Hyundai's. They are a pleasure to ride in because the drivers, happy to have a brand spanking new car, drive them carefully wanting to preserve their newness.

Mr Noor tells me that it is law that taxi companies must renew their cars every five years, and apparently that time has come. Mr Noor is waiting eagerly for his new taxi. So am I. His current vehicle, the one he was handed on his return from Pakistan, is looking a bit jaded on Riyadh streets.
