Dubai needs to order one of those computer screen dust remover cloths , but like 1 million times bigger and throw it over the city every now and then and crisp things up a little

Imre very well done with the last set of Pictures

But today it is still a jewel. For me the design is still unbelievable, although I saw it a million times (but only on pictures ). I think it will still remain one of the most remarkable buildings in Dubai for a long time.

Imre, I hope you are driving that Rolls-Royce Phantom, not some junk like Mercedes-Benz S500
