Today, in the youth section (PDF/Arabic) of Al-Rai newspaper, an article revealed the identity of the ‘scooter woman’ who has been whizzing around Amman with her red bike.
It turn out that it none other than Mrs Haya Karadsheh Qubain, the teacher at my son’s school!
The article is quite amusing and ecouraging. Apparently, Haya gets lot of smiles, greeting waves and curious question from both men and women about her scooter riding. She has acquired a driving license for motorbikes as early as 1982 and enjoys the freedom of movement her scooter gives her.
I forgot to mention one little detail. ‘Miss Haya’ is not just a teacher. She is a Tae Kwon Do trainer, and a holder of a 4 Dan Black belt! So you’d better be nice to her, ok?
