So, today the Burj Khalifa opened in Dubai.

Which apparently has a higher observation deck than the Skypod on the CN Tower in Toronto.

Which was the previous highest in the world.

Up which we went, last September.

Dubai isn't the kind of place I'd visit, being built by indentured workers.

I can't visit... not with the amount of narcotic drugs I have to carry with me. They'd have me locked up in a heartbeat.

I think Dubai looks very beautiful from pictures. I totally understand needing to go up in their building. :) But I am not sure I would go to Dubai, ever.
