I can't think of any word in English that is similar to the word "Burj"? Anyone knows?

Last days Imre is taking pictures of cladding and as far as I see there isn`t any progress on cladding, or at least they are progressing very, very slow. So that`s not good according to rumours that we here about Emaar finances and payment to contractors. That`s all.

Burj Dubai rooted in Holland

¨
I can dream away to hotter places during my lunchbreak. Such a similarity... what coincidence. It´s at the UMC Utrecht, the Netherlands. Maybe the architects were recovering from there rough amsterdam trip ending up having a breakfast at this hospitals terras in the morning.

Good point. Throw caution to the wind. Even for a week's stay.

Since now the Burj Al Arab sort of has been the symbol of Dubai. But I think in the future when normal people (the non-skyscraper addicts ) hear of the BD it will become the symbol of Dubai, just like the Eiffel Tower is the symbol of Paris and the Opera House of Sydney.

Would be cool if Burj comes in some Hollywood movies. It has been in Body of Lies but just on the background. Would be cool if it's used in a movie just like Entrapment. For those who haven't seen it it is a film from 1999 and most of it is in, at or on the Petronas Towers, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Or an hostage in the Burj like in Die Hard. But just wet dreams, to see the Burj in big films.
