Perhaps yes... But it will be too long, 3 weeks without updates.

There are no rivers in Dubai right? This artificial canal is connected to the sea so I do think there is some fish in it but don't expect much.

Itīs not artifical. Dubai Creek itīs called so itīs more a creek than a river however in earlier times it was called a river. Now it stops at around the Emirates Park Towers but will probably be extended to the Persian Gulf again so it will be half of a circle both starting and ending in the Gulf. So itīs like half artificial.

This picture clearly shows it:


And the Torch obvious lies at the Marina, which is indeed artificial. Here a map of it:

The supertall block is to the right of the water.

Welcome back Imre!

Isn't there a metal membrane on top? This could mean a concrete top our for The Torch IMO. Now brickwork is put on around and slowly the crown takes shape.

Not the white one, I meant just the gray surround of the very top... I don't think there'll be more concrete above.

My official guess: in the range 315m - 320m.
