remembering some of the COOL places I have been

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LIbq3yy_mas  the ADNEC – leaning building that leans more than 5x the leaning tower of Pisa.  The beginning of this show also gives you a really great look at the Grand Mosque - largest jeweled chandelier, largest rug in the world, as well as the Emirates Palace Hotel – the most expensive in the world – now do you get the comment “in the world’s”… you see this a LOT over there.  They do have some very impressive buildings.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWrLU7q9VgI shows the Aldar HQ Building – first circular skyscraper… well worth taking a look at…

And while I’m waxing reminiscent of the experiences I had there

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wra7o6gb6Wc  national geographic on building the Emirates Palace

It’s official, I would love to go back, however, It will be a while.
