One of the strangest things about Dubai was the way that water was used.
This is a country that has very little water. Much of what it does used is produced by de-slaination, which is not an energy poor process. Yet in the Dubai mall there was a huge aquarium containing a vast amount of water and an artificial waterfall complete with metallic divers. You could either see it as a form of madness, or more charitably as a sign of the "can do" attitude that has built the city.
Which ever way you choose to see it, there is no denying that both uses of the water are pretty remarkable.
