    Burj Dubai is in Dubai, not Abu Dhabi.

    Well the name of the building is so cryptic about the location you can’t blame me for botching that one.

    I swear “Dubai” was going through my head even as my fingers typed out “Abu Dhabi” (I’m in the habit of being overly fixated on the capital cities of countries I’ve never been to).

    It’s a confusing region. The building itself is unbelievably impressive; I’m not much on ‘human achievement’ but Burj Dubai (Dubai Tower) is breathtaking; simply standing under it and looking up makes the $70 billion debt worth every penny.
