I think from now on we should say "that's building the tower of Al Attar" instead of "building the tower of Babel"...

The funny thing is, it's not like the tower was on hold for 5 years. I would say there was probably no break in construction longer than 6 months, would you agree Altin?

It's just that when they did actually work on it, it was incredibly slow.

Shame about the insipid fodder-like colour - dreadful. Fancy having to look at that every time one passes by!

Jesus Christ! Work is too slow on the top. When do they intend on finishing construction?
