Taxi drivers in Q8

There seem to be three types of taxi driver in Q*…

1. The airport taxi drivers, by law all Q8Y, who have the best pitch of all outside the arrivals hall at Kuwait Airport, dressed in their dishdashas welcoming you to Q8 and twice the price. Conversation revolves around them and not you the customer!

2. The white licensed taxis in the street usually driven by other arabic nationalities, reasonably priced and often good company, you may have to haggle because like taxi drivers all over the world have an ability to scam you if they think you are wet behind the ears!

3. The illegal taxis usually driven by moonlighting Indians and bangladeshis to supplement their poor incomes…

They always say that taxi drivers are good fro learning the real truth about the place…. well, these are things that I have heard regularly from white cab drivers….
