It's a FANTASTIC hotel based on the photos I've seen of its interior (and exterior)!

So beautiful! Is the economy in Dubai as bad as we read here in the U.S.? Was the hotel full?

No, the economy in Dubai isn't as bad as the press make out - I think there's some jealousy around. The British press having been bashing Dubai for a while now.

Very interesting! If one were to believe the U.S. press, Dubai is on the verge of economic collapse. Maybe it's an attempt to divert attention elsewhere, away from our own economic problems.

I'm disappointed about the media world, that's why I have only my toe dipped in it.

Fantastic photograph.
Are the Qatar C-17s allowed to fly near UAE shoreline? Have you seen any in flight?
