Donkey cart ringtones

We were walking on our street near where a donkey cart was bouncing along when I heard a mobile phone start to ring. The driver of the donkey cart, perched there on the front edge of the cart, shifted his whip to his other hand and reached into the pocket of his jalabiyah (white robe), pulled out the phone, and started to chat. Why did it surprise me that a donkey cart driver would have a mobile phone?

Another day, this very kind donkey cart driver saw that Eleanor was fascinated by his animal and stopped so she could pet it.
