Not your typical Christmas Eve: Top of the Burj Khalifa

View from the ground, outside Dubai Mall.



















A friend is leaving Abu Dhabi, going back to Canada next week, and for a variety of reasons he did not get to see and do all he wanted to while he was here. So yesterday we rented a car and drove to Dubai so we could go up to the top of the tallest building in the world. It's a bit misleading, because the Burj Khalifa is 160 floors, and the highest you can go as a visitor to the building is 124. But it's pretty cool, all the same.

Burj casts quite a shadow.



















The last 36 floors.



















Looks like an artist's rendering, doesn't it?
