Another great timelapse video, this one of a part of the world I've never visited. I recommend watching it in full-screen mode.
Amazing to think of what it must have cost to bring all that water into the middle of a desert city . . . and still costs, to keep it flowing!
EDITED TO ADD: Reader C. M. sent me a link to a number of photographs of Dubai in the 1960's and 1970's, before it was developed to the extent shown in the video. Quite a contrast!
