Did you mean this one?

Finally I arrived at the top and unfortunately I cant go higher in the future

I spent 6 hours inside today, special thanks for the CoxGomyl (www.coxgomyl.com ) again , Dony ,Stuart and me done a great job today , climbing inside a spire is hard job and need to concentrate a lot , only one mistake and game over!

Just 5 pics now but from tomorrow I will start to organise the pics and videos and hopefully you will see many interesting pics of the Burj Dubai.
Thanks! Looking forward to seeing the videos. btw, does the tower really wobble?

Anticipation high for opening of 'world's most beautiful building'

Tourists and residents amazed by Burj Dubai achievement

by Samia Badih, Staff Reporter Published: 00:00 January 1, 2010

Dubai : Thousands of tourists and residents are expected to flock to the downtown area on Monday to witness the inauguration of Burj Dubai, the world's tallest tower, from the adjacent Burj Park Island.

Yousuf Z. Nazerali, a 29-year-old architect from Ethiopia, is in the UAE just to get a glimpse of the opening ceremony.

"I've been keeping track of what's happening with the Burj all the time," Nazerali said. "This event is definitely going to be a big one."

David Weisenborn, a tourist from Germany, said he and his friends plan on extending trip until after January 4.

"I work in the construction business. That's why I'm excited about this event."

Weisenborn has high expectations about the opening ceremony.

"This is Dubai," he said. "And this is the most beautiful building in the world."

UAE nationals are also awaiting the big event with great anticipation.

"I'm very proud that this is happening in Dubai," said Najeeb Al Maskari, a UAE national who plans on being in the downtown area on Monday night.

"It's amazing and a great human achievement too. They've pushed the boundaries of science here."

Many tourists who are scheduled to leave before the January 4 said they would have made different travel arrangements had they known about the Burj opening soon.

‘Incredible'

Wendy Jaivis, who is in Dubai for vacation from Australia, said she has been following the news on the construction of the Burj for a while now.

"It's just incredible to see," she said. "Had we known it's [going to] be opened on the 4th, we would have postponed our trip a bit further," said Jaivis, who is leaving the UAE on the morning of the special day.

"This is a space station, not a tower," said Marcus Roehler, a German tourist. "We're leaving on the 2nd. Unfortunately, we won't be here for the event," he added.

With tight security regulations and more than 1,000 security personnel expected to be onsite on Monday, visitors are planning to hit the Burj area early.

"I think the commute is going to be a problem because it's already crowded here on ordinary days," said Nazerali. "But hopefully I'll be able to make it."

"I'll come before there's traffic," said Khalid Mohammad Saeed, a Dubai Metro employee.

"I love this area and I always come here, so I'm definitely coming on Monday."

But whether they are around for the inauguration or not, Burj Dubai definitely has the wow-factor, leaving many of those who come to see it completely amazed.

"You can see it from everywhere," said Romain Bonzom, a 23-year-old student from France. "I like how it's tall and slim too."
