Touching The Sky
Today, Dubai officially opened the Burj Dubai, the tallest building in the world. Surprisingly a few months late too. But it's still an amazing achievement to produce something 800 metres tall in such a short space of time. Here it can take the council a month to just fill a hole in the road.
As many of you know, Gail & I visit the emirate for a holiday at least once a year. Back in Jan 08, we took a helicopter flight over the city. This included the Burj Dubai. Here's what the area looked like then. Still an impressive sight you must agree. The four buildings to the right is the Dubai Mall, which is reckoned to be the largest shopping centre in the world.
