Can some moderator change the title to T/O?

Thank you for the images Imre!
Yes, in 3 weeks I get to go home after we finish this. Only for 2 weeks rest then back to Dubai. I don't think I will ever get to leave for long. They keep wanting more buildings, so we keep building more buildings!

To me, the most amazing part of this building is the base, which hardly anyone ever sees!

Yes, the base is truly amazing and it will get much better when finished. Believe me that it will get the attention it deserves.
