Is that the US edition? I don't remember it being a cover story in the US. They had some pic of a rainforest instead and only a few pages on Dubai.

The Dubai article is the same as in the U.S. Jan. 2007 issue (available on newstands now but with the Amazon cover). National Geographic cover photos often vary by region.

Hey guys, please pardon the spanish but im simply going to respond to our friends question about the affects on the ecosystem :-)


Es buena pregunta culiacanboy.

El gobierno de Dubai junto con las compañías encargadas de la construccion del Palm Jumeirah ha invertido mucho dinero y tiempo en el analisis e impacto en la flora y fauna de la area afectada. Los ultimos resultados sorprendentemente han demostrado que hay mas ahora que antes que la reclamacion empesara. Esto se cree es debido a mas costa y mas albergue para los seres vivientes de la costa de Dubai.

Interesante no? Espero que eso responda a tu pregunta, si tienes mas simplemente mandame un mensaje personal.

the only thing that i dont like about the villas there is how they are so packed in together, they should have spread them out more, made them a little more private but other than that it is still cool

See, I would like to live there (or have a summer house there) if only they were farther apart... much much much farther apart. I figure with the money I am *theoretically* paying, I can get some distance from the neighbor.

Yes but that money you are paying has to cover the fact your house is being built in the middle of the ocean. I mean there are some minor costs associated with that

Well I understand the economics of this pretty well.

Just personal preference. Maybe they should have a couple "leaves" that have large distances between houses, for those that are willing to pay. But then again, there might not be that many of them.

The only thing that I don't like about the villas is that people will have neighbours with the exact same house. Couldn't they offer more options? Or maybe even allow people to have their homes designed by private architects?
