I received a comment on my Atlantis Hotel post that goes like this:
Just look at the beauty that has been created as a direct result of money from and support of the USA, and we can’t even build good roads at home for our own people.
What a Shame.
The IP address of the comment email I got indicates that it’s from someone from the US, or at least, the location where the comment was sent was the US.
Am I missing something here?
I’ve lived in Dubai for just two and a half years and yet not heard of any Dubai milestone project financially backed by America. So I checked Wikipedia (Wiki info is to be trusted right?). The first line says it all:
The Palm Jumeirah is an artificial island created using land reclamation by Nakheel, a company owned by the Dubai government.
I do not have the idea or inkling that the US somehow financed (even partially) to build the Palm Island. Nothing I’ve heard or read of, at least so I don’t know where the commenter got his/her information. I sure want to know…
Anyway, summer is finally here. The temperatures have risen and it’s so hot it could melt all the ice in Antartica within 24 hours. But I can under estimate.
We’re talking about 115F with super high humidity (enough to give you zero visibility when you’re wearing glasses and going outside from an airconditioned building) with lows at 100F. LOWS of 100F! How dare they put the word LOW on that hideous temperature. They’ve got to be kidding me.
