How do you really judge a vehicle to be road worthy anyway??

Today's day trip to Sidon was lovely, and by about 5pm, we were feeling satisfied and ready to head back to Mt. Lebanon.  Turning onto the main road heading north out of town, we got stuck behind a slow moving motorized wheelchair.  Yes, a wheelchair.  Not to worry, though, we soon enough passed the slumped but impeccably dressed wheelchair driver and continued creeping through the jumbled mass of everything on wheels.  However, the driving dynamics of 5 lanes of traffic trying to use a two-lane road during the evening hours of a major Muslim holiday meant that, pretty soon, that darn wheelchair passed us.  Ouch!


  1. Watch out for those wheelchair racers. They're probably not afraid to rub bumpers and chip paint.
