Put it down, dig it up...

...put it down again, dig it up again.

That's the Dubai way. And that's why the construction will never be finished. Along with it we get the added confusion, extra pollution, wasted money.

They're at it again in Dubai Marina. At long, long last the paving of footpaths and roundabouts is being done.

As always, resources are being thrown at the job. Dozens of workers everywhere, piles of pavers, machinery...they're doing a great job and doing it very quickly...





Less than 50 metres away the holescapers are working equally feverishly, ripping up pavers and digging big holes...





I see it all the time and I'm still amazed every time.

And so to Singapore...

In a couple of hours we're off to the airport for two weeks in Singapore. Not sure if I'll have time to post anything here...if not, see you in Ramadan.

Enjoy the trip Seabee. No doubt they'll be ripping up again when your return.
