The landscaping you are talking about is putting potted plants everywhere, right?

Does any greenery grow naturally in the sand?

I believe even palm trees need nutritious dirt and clean water to grow.
I read about palm trees in coastal areas in other countries dying because of rising sea level increasing salinity in the water.

It's just a hobby that he is good at. When I was 20ish I used to run illegal parties. Police, ever so often turned up and ask me why I was doing them. Many couldn't understand it was just for fun, even though herds used to flock to which ever field we where using.

If you compare the Armani Hotel entrance as it is now with pictures taken 28 days ago, it's pretty clear to me that the rest can be done in a month.

When i look at these picture, i always think that the windows of the Burj Dubai are too big, so it makes the tower looking 400 m instead of 800.

Thanks,

This is just my hobby , no one pays for it.

Sometimes I am selling photos, the last 2 weeks was really good because the international media made many news about Dubai and asked some pics for using so I did some money which will cover my petrol for a long but the main reason is just taking pics for fun not for money

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...
Yep....that's why all the papers are going broke....people are getting smarter....
