Brilliant shots you two!

I had no idea those black triangular elements would turn out to be small fountains.. Does that mean on the South East-ish side, adjacent to the lake, all those long, thin triangular bits will also be fountains?

Media is Bullshit..

Two days ago, headline was "Serious consqences for 5 British Sailors."

Today in the same paper I read, "Sailors set free immediately."

How did the headline swing so dramatically,, from the idea of them all being excuted to being set free with no charge.

TO SELL PAPERS...........

The first bit of bad news on the ability of one of Dubai's thousands of companies the press are all worried. They are not worried about Dubai, They are worried that their story doesn't spark any interest so they add bit or leave it open to suggestion.

Property Crash in Dubai? Yep some places are seriously depressed and will stay that way. But prices around the burj have dramatically increased recently... Why? How? you ask,,, because the Downtown District is fantastic. Safe, secure, well designed and modern.



For all those with green eyes or blind to what really going on, come and see it first hand. Do not relly on newspapers or hersay...

Yesterday night I was at the Mina Seyahi when they arrived, after I went to the press conference , honestly the whole story is little bit strange for me ,
BBC did a good money with them
