What in the name of sanity are you talking about?! C'mon man, get a grip!


On Topic: Well, the only way you will ever truly get to know Dubai is to go there and experience the lifestyle for yourself, instead of taking in everything you may read or hear on the internet, or in the press. Go and experience the culture of the place, speak and interact with the local communities there and then form your opinion/s based purely on these facts.

I just checked the thread title myself a minute ago. Just to be absolutely sure I was in the right place of course.

What I find amuzing about this sign is that it directs the driver off Doha Street at the North end of The Mall and onto the Boulevard.

The Boulevard is only a complete circle that exits back onto Doha Street at the Southern end of The Mall.

So.................................where the feck does Abu Dhabi come into the equation?

Tiara is French for donut.

She's saying she's a bit on the heavy side because she's eaten so many donuts.

As an aspiring architect, I would say that brain deads do not have much chance of breaking our of the "aspiring" bracket.

Freekin hell, all roads lead to Abu Dhabi.

But how many of the dimwit white bus drivers have being going around the Boulevard all night looking for the Abu Dhabi exit.

They have also taken away the roundabout at the Residences and Boulevard Central just to make sure that this can happen clockwise and anti clockwise.

I would love to be a fly on the wall at one of their planning meetings.

Well Abu Dhabi owns the tower so it is 5,000,000 sq ft of Abu Dhabi.

Imre, are these bushes on the roadside, fed by sewer water? or are they growing naturally in the desert?
