    Yeah they're really building lavishly down there these days. I only wish Danish politicians would allow the same kind of constructions here.

    I've always loved the design of The Sail

    I have followed this for several years now. Dubai is running out of oil (projected 20-30 years) which would leave this desert country one of the poorest on earth. Their ruler (don't know his name) is a visionary and years ago began planning for the future. Turning his country into what will be a tourists destination. The islands they are building boggle the imagination.

    I am at least glad they are spending their money on capitalistic ventures, and not defense spending.
