Some evening views of Sheikh Zayed road and some other bits and bobs in Dubai.
First of all, we spend 1 hour driving around trying to find a book shop, and not just any odd sod book shop, it was a french book shop that we wanted as we wanted to give a gift to one of our senior managers. As you can imagine, it was a bit challenging. On all sides. Anyway.
The roads are plentiful and curving all over the place. This is a service road connecting the main highway.
The Al Burj tower.
And this futuristic building as well. Nice from an architectural perspective, but I just wonder. This does not give rise to the sense of awe and pride in human construction and achievement that perhaps a NY or HK would. It is just missing the human element, its too cold. Its a combination of the people and the climate perhaps.
