Dubai skyline

Last time I went through Dubai, it was during a dust storm and I could hardly see much. Today I was amazed to see these pictures of Dubai skyline. It is interesting there is no oil money in Dubai, it is all international trade that has caused sprout of this magical place in desert.

Have a nice weekend.

  1. Hello:
    These are astounding aerial photographs. We have never visited Dubai and suspect that we never shall but it is, as you say, so curious that all of this should just spring out of the desert!

  2. Jane and Lance about 10 to 15 years back it was nothing like this, it has just changed in short period of time like magic from Aladdin.

  3. Such astounding changes in just thirteen years!! A Magical Kingdom I would love to visit.

    I hope you will come and see the feature I have on an amazing sculptor.

  4. I think Dubai is worth a visit, it is a very westernized place and you always feel at home.

    Best wishes
