the entire city is being marketed as a second home for people to spend several weeks a year. i can't imagine being in dubai when most major projects are complete. i can only imagine it would be a graveyard of behemoth ryugyong hotels. isn't it people that makes a city great? give me $5 mil and i'm off to punta del este or santorini or the like.

in a situation like this i'd like to say "i want to be proven wrong." but i don't. i want dubai to fail. spectacularly. then again, maybe it will draw away a lot of the chinese businessmen absentee-ing vancouver to death. but somehow i doubt that.
