I spotted this newspaper delivery man at Khalifa Street reading(?) the Gulfnews while on his midmorning break. He's from Kerala, India. When I asked his permission, he said yes but I felt his reluctance. I was not so sure if he understood me because both of us can speak basic arabic only and in between the conversation, I heard some words that I didn't understand.
Shops, stores, offices and other establishments along downtown Al Ain opens at 09:00 A.M. during weekdays and 05:00 P.M. on Fridays (weekend is friday and saturday). Before nine o'clock, you will see the newspaper delivery men along the residential areas. The most common form of transpost service that they are using are the motorcycles and bicycles.
By the way, Gulfnews and Khaleej Times are the popular english newspapers here in UAE. Arabic newspapers, newspapers written in other languages and Al Ain Times (a weekly tabloid newspaper written in arabic and english) are also available.

Word of the day: khaleej is the arabic word for gulf. Example: Khaleej al Arabi- the arabian gulf.
