The Falcon City of Wonders

Dubai will build a city of life-size replicas of seven wonders of the world at US$1.5 house offices, shops, flats...etc the entire project will takes on the shape of a falcon..the symbol of UAE..Now the drums roll pls..the seven are Great Pyramid of Giza, Hanging Garden of Babylon, Lighthouse of Alexandria, Eiffel Tower, Taj Mahal, Leaning Tower of Pisa and Great Wall of China..NOT miniatures ok..LIFE-SIZE!..
Welcome to Dubai..the mother of all mega projects!

That's because, in case if the condition of the actual structures deteriorates so badly, then at least we have these life like "wonders of the world" as a back up.

But seriously, couldn't those billions of $$ be spent on something for the betterment of society? Like injecting some money into their education system? (students were turned away due to lack of funds! Imagine!)

A relatively young nation, progressing at Warp Speed! which is good, but not very good. The higher you go, the harder you fall. That's what I predict for the big real estate boom!
