just a corrections Elizabeth already a Queen in that picture not a princess

It's shocking. To get such a contrasting history of my country, the UK, you'd have to go back 200 years. In Dubai, you have to go back only 25 years!

on a different note, these pictures got me thinking that Dubai was acutally really slow to modernize itself compared to other gulf cities. By the mid 70's cities like Riyadh, Jeddah and Kuwait city had very modern infastructre placed.
