What could possibly go wrong?

I am trying to get this link up as a video, but just to make sure that you at least have the opportunity to see it, I'm posting up the link instead.

It is absolutely astounding - a mixture of faith in the driver's skill, and in Allah. I wonder when the next roundabout was coming up? Just watch it and see!

  2. Yeah ….. that's how I do it if I get a puncture on my way to Waitrose ……. only I haven't got such a long, straight road as that !!!
    Very impressive but one has to ask the question, WHY ? Because they can, I guess. XXXX

    1. Those rich, young Saudis have a lot of free time on their hands, and they don't spend all day and night drinking alcohol. The obsession with cars is almost their only fun, and the obvious pass-time, it seems.

  10. I know driving is Saudi is dangerous, from my time living there in the late 70s, but this takes the kebab. Mad, but at the same time terrifyingly impressive.
