I've been to many large and small cities - New York, L.A, Toronto, Paris, London, Mumbai, Dehli, Dar-es-salaam, Nairobi, Chicago, and so on. None even close to the prostitute density of Dubai - Dubai is the prostitution champion of the world! It is extremely in your face, and I never saw any police doing anything about it. They even note it in just about any tourist book.

Here are a few sites talking about the united nations of prostitution - Dubai. The first link has an excellent video about it also!

What did u say? Unless YOUR country invade UAE?? Off course, that's the kind of thoughts we can expect from guys like u (from USA) who thinks u are the center of the world. People retarded like u are the PROBLEM of the world.
If u want to start this kind of political discussion, hope u are ready to go to the end.

Yeah, sorry CrazyAboutCities, but that was pretty dumb.


But yeah, apart from their ambitious architecture, there's little that's good about Dubai (or UAE in general). And since it's a theocracy, that's to be expected.

Hi all.

Hey Gattberserk - I am the one who posted that.
It is but a few lines of 10,000 from a time schedule from April 2007. The info is from Skytower from a few months ago. It is part of the best information ever made available to us. Thanx again Sky.

Each line shows the estimated schedule for one of 3 core wall sections - C1, C2, and C3. It shows the level, the core section ( C1, C2, or C3 ), how many days from start to finish, what percentage is done ( as of April '07 ), ( disregard the 32D, 42D ), the start date, and the finish date.

The concrete above 153 will probably be formed around the base steel beams of the steel section.

Here is a few more lines.





Hope this helps.

People already constantly accuse Dubai of turning western (as a bad thing), imagine if they changed there laws to.

Yeah, maybe we should all just give up now because the sun is going to explode in a million years anyway.

Hey, why take a shower when you're just going to get dirty again?

Seriously!
