Burj Dubai opening...

"Burj Dubai, the world’s tallest building, will open Monday (January 4, 2010) in a carefully orchestrated ceremony before a crowd of thousands. Developed by Emaar Properties, Burj Dubai is the focal point of the 500-acre master planned community Downtown Burj Dubai."

All I can say is I WISH I was there today for its inauguration!
Dawn please take TONS of pics for me!!!!

Hi Leesa!

OMG...I can't believe you posted about this because we were just talking about this at work today!!!

HOLY COW....that is ONE TALL BUILDING!!

The last image is AMAZING.

The tallest building I was ever in was the World Trade Center, back in 2001. And BROTHER..was that TALL!

I always keep hearing how beautiful Dubai is. The tourist that I've met from there are the NICEST people!

Thanks for posting this today, Leesa!

Hope you had a MARVI day!

Hi Ron...


I can't wait to go back- my ex boyfriend is from there and his family is my "second" family! I visited back in 95 and LOVED it... It's grown sooo much since then... I probably wouldn't recognize it at all...

Philip-- It certainly IS!!!

Noelle-- YEP!! The pressure is on and just a few more days to go!!
