Don't know if this has been showen here before, but I found this movie clip from the ground breaking of burj dubai. Very interesting stuff...

It's produced by Reuters, but I found it on a Danish new site.

It is wierd that the video clip was on a Danish site... Most people around here don't even know where Dubai is!!! But personally, I have the greatest respect for Dubai, it IS (and will be) the most beautiful and attractive city in the world! No doubt... The Burj Dubai will complete the "master piece" It was good to watch that clip, but it really doesn't tell us much new...
