That actually is an idea than I only have to travel to Dubai to see 10 tallest buildings in the world

hah, those roads on the foreground looks awfully like a race track.

Which would probably happen in Dubai in the future anyway, Grand Prix of Dubai. Doesn't sound too bad.

Most of them are temporary road diversions due to the construction of a huge intersection nearby, connecting the aerea with the main highway. You can even see an access ramp being build.

I don´t think "catching up" is the appropiate word to use...maybe just "starting to do something about it", but again, there´s no comparison.

I would say that Dubai is catching up to New York, Chicago, etc.


It still has a ways to go in my opinion...
