To the Island of Happiness

With five lanes in each direction, this new 1.4-kilometre Abu Dhabi-Saadiyat Bridge will link Abu Dhabi to the cultural district in Saadiyat, tourist resorts, five-star hotels, golf course and the Formula1 Grand Prix Circuit on Yas Island. Costing $27billion, Saadiyat (In Arabic meaning "Island of Happiness") will eventually be home to both the Guggenheim Modern Art Museum and the Louvre Abu Dhabi as well as estimated 160,000 residents - Can't wait to go!

What a massive undertaking! The water is so blue. These comments have nothing to do with each other, but the photo evokes quite a few thoughts!

Wow! I hope there is a demand for all that.
