…in with the new. Ok, so this not the usual image you see in the brochures presenting Dubai. Although this area looks rather desolate it is taken in Jumeirah, one of the most expensive neighbourhoods in Dubai. The government has started demolishing some of the old houses in this area to make room for newer, better and bigger villas, but with the real estate market going down, I wonder how long it will be until something is actually built here. In the background you can spot the tallest building in the world, Burj Dubai, emphasizing yet again the contrasts found in Dubai since this building is probably one of the few construction projects going ahead as planned at the moment.
