Let's take a moment to praise the Abu Dhabi Traffic and Licensing Department

You know what? Despite the huge pile of paperwork I had to amass, and even though the office was closed yesterday when it should have been opened, when I actually made it in there it was the smoothing bureaucratic experience of my life.

Two guys with oddly puffy hair.

Total time from when I walked into the lobby--the comfortable and easy-to-navigate lobby with a snack bar, I might add--to when I was handed my shiny new card was about 20 minutes. In the interim I took a "vision test" (identified three numbers with one eye closed) and answered a couple of questions. And that was it.

How shall I celebrate? I'm considering tracking down some comida Mexicana.
