A few days ago I was in Dubai visiting a friend. Dubai surprises by its immense buildings and could be described as a vertical city. City emerging in the middle of the desert. Among its buildings there is one that stands out above the rest: the Burj Khalifa tower, the tallest building in the world. Of course, a must see. Even at a considerable distance and using a wide angle, the 828 meters of the turret does not fit into the photo.

The tourist elevator “only” reaches the 124th floor. From floor 0 to 124 in 60 seconds, not bad. And all this seasoned with a great game of music and lights. A shame that the elevator did not go outside the building to be aware of the meteoric ascent.

Once up, the views are typical of when you take off by plane, with the difference that you are not on a plane. The world at your feet, literal. The large buildings below, near the Burj Khalifa, are now nothing more than toy buildings, mere constructions of Monolopy. The 7 lane freeways with their impossible knots are precious Scaletrix with tiny cars. The views would become endless if it were not for the eternal haze that reigns in the atmosphere of Dubai.

In the end one becomes accustomed to such height and ostentation, an unmistakable sign that it is time to leave the heavens and to descend in 60 seconds to the mortal earth.
