One of the things that is hard to get used to about life in Abu Dhabi...

... is how they give you telephone numbers here. Four digits and then three digits. It always hurts my brain a little bit when someone is rhyming numbers off and they begin with "3679". It's just a tiny shift in where the pause falls, but it confuses me every time.

I think it might have origins in the language, since it is spoken and read from right to left.
