Tell me what you think

The Burj Dubai has just surpassed the 629 meter (2,063 ft) mark. This milestone makes it the tallest man made structure on earth. The record had been previously held by thKVLY-TV tower in Blanchard, North Dakota. At 160 stories, the Burj was already the tallest building exceeding the 508 meters of Taipei 101. When its finished it will stand 900 meters.
The guys operating the cranes at the top must be fearless.
I'm just back from AbuDhabi and am still way off kilter jet lag wise.
I spend the majority of my life on the road for my job and this little travelogue fulfils two purposes:
It lets me document the little vignettes which unroll all around you if you take the time to pay attention. It also lets me live under the illusion that my job doesn't dictate every aspect of my life.
