A great city is not to be confounded with a populous one

Ruler of Dubai, Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum famously saidWe, in the UAE, have no such word as “impossible”; it does not exist in our lexicon. Such a word is used by the lazy and the weak, who fear challenges and progress. When one doubts his potential and capabilities as well as his confidence, he will lose the compass that leads him to success and excellence, thus failing to achieve his goal. I require you, youth, to insist on number one.” 

Well he did achieve in turning Dubai, into one of the most famous commercial cities in the world, and a major player in terms of trade and tourism. As well as a leading conference and exhibition venue in the Middle East with its beautiful infrastructure, amazing night life and appealing fashion centres (even though Kuwait and Bahrain might challenge the title).  Here are the rest of the pictures from my trip to Dubai:

I think this is self explanatory, I don't need to spell out where I'm @ :)
