fascinating project to see, but i can't imagine living there... i love nature, and i like feeling alone when i am in my swiming-pool; houses on the palm are so close... and club, shops, etc, but are there cultural sites, monuments to visit?

i know i ask a lot, but i'm french and in France i can have all of that...

it's a pity because i love this project the architecturally speaking.

more enclosure and nature would have been a great advantage.

Whats the point of travelling and expecting each and every nation around the world to provide you with what your used to back home ?

Unless are planning to live in the UAE for 10 years + then i guess i understand what your trying to say

well, i reformulate: i love cultural visits during my vacation. i love itally, germany, spain, france of course, etc etc ...

but i absolutely have respect for what is done in dubai. i'd like to be wrong on the subject. at least, it can be an architectural trip!

moreover, with the lack of oil, it's gonna be very difficult for tourists to travel to dubai, but it's another issue and debate.

Dubai is a city right now , it has become a city not long ago it was infact a village , you cannot expect it to rival bigger cities like paris and countries like the one youve mentioned when it comes down to historical monuments...

what does the lack of oil (whos lacking ? ) got to do with decrease in visitors to dubai ?

Oil prices have gone down , potential tourists have more money to spend on travels AND airliners now spend alot less of their budget on fueling their planes

well lack of oil in 30 years... i hope that dubai authorities will highly develop public equipments like the monorail, the metro, etc etc

well, the point is that i love that kind of great architecture, but i think it's very risky in the future.

my god, do you speak french? i'm too tired to explain my thoughts in english!

I wouldn't want to live their either but maybe in the future when everything is finished and all the vegetation has had time to "mature." I want the blue house that looks modern and exotic.

How to buy UGG sheepskin boots

How to buy UGG sheepskin boots?Everyone who wear the UGG sheepskin boots will get many benefits. UGG boots are made to be worn barefoot as they will form to your feet and provide natural arch support. When buying a pair of sheepskin boots or ugg boots (premier brand in luxury and comfort footwear), there are many things to look for:First of all, you must make sure your sheepskin boots are actually made out of 100% authentic sheep skin. Some manufacturers use cheap substitutes such as gluing synthetic wool on to cow hide. These imitation sheepskin boots come at a cheaper price tag, but unfortunately the less expensive alternatives may cause skin irritations, encourage bacteria growth, wear down, tear quickly and noticeably less comfortable. http://www.shoppingugg.com When buying sheepskin boots, make sure they are manufactured from quality Australian Merino wool. Australian Merino sheepskin boots are considered the best material for making sheepskin boots and it also ensures that you will be able to use them for many years. Authentic wool also allows your feet to breathe and help reduce feet sweating. Merino sheep skin is by and large thicker and much more durable than other kinds of sheep skin, which helps your boots keep their shape as well as resist wear and tear. By purchasing sheepskin boots made from merino wool and sheep skin, you will be guaranteed that not only will they be the most comfortable pair of sheepskin boots you'll ever own, but they will also last for a long time to come. I have included some links if you would like to learn more about sheepskin boots or youwant to know where can buy some UGG Boots - Australia markets the premier brand in luxury and comfort. Their many products fit into your every day life offering you products that are fashionable, comfortable, and attainable.Ugg Boots have been made and worn in Australia/China for over 50 years and "Ugg" is not associated with any brand or style of sheepskin boot. So if your looking for real australian made ugg boots look no further than Shopping Ugg See our full range of Cardy UGG Boots , Classic Short UGG Boots , Classic Tall UGG Boots , Metallic UGG Boots , Sundance UGG Boots and now even new Mini UGG Boots then you can find all the love from australia right here.
