ZZ-II I meant fanatical about the negativity people have towards this development, everyone seems to think this island will sink or be flooded, people seem to forget land reclamation like i said is nothing new, of course the only differnece here is the scale is much larger and i suppose that alarms people

I just looked at the pictures very closely about monorail line. I'm little confused about Dubai monorail project... Is it dead end at this Palm Jumeirah Island near the tunnel? Or what?

I was wondering that too. Is the monorail line going to cross the water to the "outskirts" of the island?



Those pictures are beautiful. I love seeing patches of rich greenery although Dubai is a sandy desert city.

The Monorail will cross over the water, Dubai is getting greener and greener as each project comes to completion, look at Tom greens photos he shows that Dubai is in fact a green city; besides the desert being part of this city is a beautiful contrast, (it is the modern vs. the natural)
