However, when this friend precises that this hotel is in Dubai, in the Middle East, then all you might have imagined up to there seems inappropriated. A hotel? In the desert? Well then, it must be closer to a tent than to a skyscraper, huh? Well, in fact, not exactly.
And when you've finally accepted the idea that this hotel may be one of the greatest buildings on the Earth, and that its design as well as its place -- litterally "on" the sea -- are unbelievable , then you're still far from the reality.
Get ready, keep your hand on your mouse, and open your eyes !
