I've been following this progress for some time now. History International channel has also done a few shows about it. Interesting stuff, all those man made islands.

Well, the Sheik (or Crown Prince, I don't remember which it is) figured the oil wouldn't last forever and Al Dubai already has the largest population of non-Arabs residents in the whole Middle East. Hopefully soon, people will think of Dubai when you mention the Middle East instead of things like Baghdad or the West Bank/Gaza Strip.

ya i saw a slide show on the building of all this. its pretty insane. on top of one of the new hotels is a tennis court. but the building's roof barely covers the tennis court. so people have to buy the balls by the hundreds cause they just fly over the edge. also another hotel had people hitting balls into the ocean off the top.

It is pretty slick looking.

I personally love the indoor skiing thing, and thats a bit funny considering I have never once skied in my life... The concept alone is cool enough to warrant a trip there some day - being able to go into a walk-in freezer :haha:
