The World's Tallest Building

Welcome to the second day on Dubai.

Today's pictures is of the Burj Khalifa, which is the tallest building in the world at 2716.5 feet tall. That is nearly 1,000 feet, or 52 stories taller than the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower). That is quite staggering.

When I received this photo I immediately started reading up on it and I highly recommend it. The construction was very secretive and only announced after it opened. The pictures of it completed are staggering as well as it towers and dwarfs every other skyscraper around it.

Simply stunning what people are building these days.

As I mentioned earlier, all of these pictures of coming from Cheryl and her trip abroad for work. Thanks again Cheryl for thinking of us.
