Dubai timelapse

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!

I lived there 2 years in the mid-80's and it looked nothing like it does now.
