I am currently in Ajman – for those who don’t know, this is the smallest of the United Arab Emirates not far from Dubai. I’m here to speak at a conference on Urban Planning. Yesterday we had the fantastic opportunity to visit the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the World. We zoomed up to the viewing platform on the 124th floor in less than 1 minute (ears popping along the way!) This is apparently the highest outdoor observation platform so allowed for some fantastic night-time views.
