I would have to agree with you about the cranes the amount of =

Dennis,
I was told a very high percentage of the world's construction cranes are =
in Dubai. After visiting there, there is no doubt in my mind this is =
true. There are something like 4000 major buildings going up all at =
once.
For those who have trouble believing you can put a ski slope inside a =
shopping mall, I've posted some quick pix from myrecent trip here: =
The Gold Souk is interesting. But if you want REALLY interesting stop by =
the Naif Souq, just a few blocks away. When I was there a month ago the =
place was packed with shoppers, and I was the only non-native in the =
place. Tiny alleys cramped with clothing, almost all of it variations on =
the full black outfits worn by the conservative women. I thought itwas =
fascinating until I came across one shop selling nothing but wigs!. =
Despite wearing head to toe black outfits, these women were buying wigs. =
I didn't want to take a picture because I was told this could offend =
them, but I just had to stop and stare.
Just across the street from the Naif Souq is the shoe area. I bought two =
nice pairs of shoes (made in China) for about $6 a pair.
I got invited back to teach in March and am definitely looking forward =
to returning.
