Last days of Rome (cont.)

I was told last week that 250 new five and seven star hotels, 1,000 major new restaurants, and a second indoors ski slope three times bigger than the one just opened, will be completed in Dubai over the next next five to seven years. So that's where all the designers and architects went. The good news is that three feet wide cracks are rumoured to have appeared in the gin palace houses built by slebs on those floating reclaimed islands.
