Check out the big wheels these Bahrain big wigs roll with. No sedate Lincoln Town Cars or cheap-ass taxis here. This crew slaps cash in hand and makes drivers smile. All the guys waxing these cars mid-day did so with hot money grins.
The drivers I talked to said that they were getting serious green to drive around DC, and drive fast and loose too. Apparently the Bahraini dignitaries liked a good gas pedal stomp at every green light and tire-squealing turns. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
If I had more money than god too, I’d be one nut-case driver. I’d even honk at Don, just for fun.
