A new siren in town

The frequency of police sirens these days has increased for some reason.  The sound of sirens has also changed.  Amman is coming of age, and with it comes a new fleet of police cars.  Strangely enough, the sound of the sirens does not bother me.  In fact I like it.  The sound of the new sirens is exactly the same as the ones heard in Paris or London.  So everytime I hear a police siren goes off, I just close my eyes and pretend that I am on vacation somewhere in an exotic city in Europe...until I am rudely awakened by: "Honda zarga, wasse3 tareeg"
