With Taipei 101, first you take a Chinese food take out box and set it upside down, then you stack about 8, right side up, on top of it. LOL

He went on vacation, I believe. I remember him saying he'd be gone for a few weeks. I think he goes to school in Dubai. Maybe he's visiting home.

He's been living in Dubai since 9 years but he's actually British.

Took the words right out of my mouth...the bottom of that building is ugly! Ever wonder why they never show the base on TV?

ESB is cool from base to pinnacle...hands down a much nicer looking building.
