in words, sights and sounds

The bizarre coexistence of fish, ‘homo sapiens’ and retail stores in a Dubai shopping mall: these photographs were taken from outside the gigantic aquarium with sting rays, sharks, and tons of other impressive fish that I can’t name in the middle of a shopping mall, located (well, let’s face it) in the desert.


There is an indoor ski resort around the corner as well. Not so great in terms of ecological footprint. But, hey, allegedly it is money that makes the world go round: this is why we will – fortunately – never see a ‘desert world’ for sand dunes surfers in Greenland.

    It’s totally crazy and ……scary !

    Thank you for showing (wonderful pictures of course …i would say as usual), what “Business Homo Sapiens” is abble to build and imagine, thinking he can create what “mother nature” did before !!!

    The only “positive side” i would find in this gigantic aquarium is: ……….when the oceans will be completely destroyed, polluted, damaged, by human activities….we will find somewhere in this BIG shopping mall what it was like ………before 🙂

    no oil slick AT ALL :-))

    I thought I recognized that aquarium. Isn’t there a nice Italian cafe directly opposite?
