Hi all.

I just noticed in Desert's update they have removed the second crane from the office annex. Looking back through my collection it appears to have been removed approx. 09 08 20 - two and a half weeks ago. I have been watching for the continuation of the top crane disassembly, I never even noticed the annex crane.

Dubai can't be real... simply can't! It's so futuristic, beyond imagination. ;-)

Perhaps the next Dubai mega project should be a massive sand/pollution remover put right next to the Burj so you can see it's glory for many miles. lol
