Congradulations, Dubai! The firework pictures look really impressive!


I'm in no rush, so I'll watch the whole thing later in the comfort of my bed.

That's why they took that sign away on one of the pics by Imre last week that said 'Burj Dubai' at the entrance.. But I can live with it!

Thanks all for the contributions!

True! I personally find it a very bad (probably last moment) decision, but we will get used to it!
