Dubai: A Trip Through the Time Machine

A Trip Through the Time Machine
Originally uploaded by UAE style.
I've posted before on the growth in Dubai which to me is just beyond astounding. It's almost indescribable for a westerner like me, who's used to things staying somewhat the same from year to year.

This gives you an idea what 14 years worth of industrious work can accomplish. This is Sheikh Zayed Road, with the lower photo taken in 1991, and the upper one taken in 2005.

These guys are actually putting a future their for their country which is beyond just oil, which is what I find quite respectable about the whole ordeal. Now, they just need a Scientology church, as there isn't a single one right now in the whole country!
