Finally - Streetview in Dubai!
It's going to have to be one busy set of Streetview cars to keep up with the construction and roadworks.
 
Now You Can Virtually Wander the Streets of Dubai | TIME

'Google added ‘Street View’ to its map of Dubai on Monday, marking the feature’s first foray into an Arab country.'

Dubai is home to the world’s tallest tower, largest mall and the planet’s only seven-star hotel. With all these modern wonders, it’s no surprise that Dubai hosted 10 million global visitors last year—and aims to hit a record-breaking 20 million visitors in 2020. Starting today, it can add virtual visitors to that list, as Dubai becomes the first city in an Arab country to be added to Street View in Google Maps.

Start your tour with a drive on Sheikh Zayed Road, the longest road in the Emirates that runs in parallel to the coastline. Peer up at the city’s iconic skyscrapers and high-rise towers that, in some cases, reach more than 1,000 feet into the clouds. On one side, you can see the city’s elevated and driverless metro system.

At 8:15 AM I called Safelite Auto Glass for a quote to fix a chip in my car's windshield. I wasn't expecting to get the work done today, but the customer service rep gave me a great deal. We scheduled the appointment for 9:30 AM. Then he asked if he could send me an email confirmation.

All female skiers in one amazing big mountain and freestyle movie – get ready for PURE, the new film from the Shades of Winter crew. Their first movie was premiered many times at festivals and dubbed "the first movie where girls really charge" – and in this year's PURE expect even crazier and more impressive footage of incredibly exposed big mountain lines, and perfectly executed freestyle tricks!
