Just teaching some lessons of life, lol

It's spelt: And stop criticizing my spelling. I know your learning, but you write with correct grammar (at least almost correct) but the words are spelt completely wrong.

Nice pictures though!

Now the construction is reaching the most interesting part imo.
I'm very excited about when the concrete part will top out and it sure is amazing to see the cladding finally being added.

But wait that wasn't why I made this post
Vanhenrik knows perfectly well that he is misspelling, it's actually not that unusual that swedes misspell on purpose.
You should seriously consider banning him if he doesn't not stop with this nonsense!
Believe me! its 100% on purpose!

Damn this building is amazing, and when it is finisched i think it is my favourite building of all time.
By the way i read a part in the newspaper today about working circumstances in Dubai. And it is realy bad. There are over 1.2 miljon workers in United Emirates, and from those workers the biggest part works in Dubai.
They get paid 6 times higher then in thier home country's, but they work 6 days a week! And they have nothing else to do then sleep and work. And they sleep in barracs outside the city.
And they also don't see their family's for years. It all seems so beautifull if you read this topic, but in reality it is a hard job.
I also read that many of the workers commit suicide. I think i can imagine that, because if you only work an sleep you really get crazy.
