Traffic of Middle-East

For the past 3 and half years, I have been living in a foreign country in the Middle-East. When people talk about Middle-East, Arabs and Muslims pop-up in their heads, which is true. I am in the Sultanate of Oman.

People often say that the Arabs are crazy rich, which I would not entirely agree with. Anyone who has a lot of money out of nowhere will go insane and start spending it like a stream.

Among spending on many material things, one common one is vehicles. Almost whoever can afford, has a vehicle, either be a fancy one or a simple. This has caused the roads to flood during the mornings and evenings when commuting to and from office.

This is so common that if there are two family members, living in the same house working in the same office at the same time will come and go on their own vehicles.

I cannot forget that night when I went to meet 6 of my relatives in an view-spot location. Those 6 can be grouped with 2 and 4 brothers. I mean, 2 came from one place and the other 4 came from one place. But how many cars? Including mine, 6.
