Dogs are usually not allowed in tall “iconic” buildings. Maybe it’s the high security, maybe it’s the confinement of tight spaces and too many people in a big building. Or maybe simply the buildings are too new and they don’t trust us not to soil them. 🙂
Yesterday Impostor and Mummy went to Burg Khalifa – the world’s tallest building – they went all the way up to the 122nd Floor!!!! They could have gone to the observation deck on the 148th floor, but opted to enjoy the view with champagne and tea with Ellen – who is Kai’s mummy.P.S. – Kai is “the boy who wanted a dog but decided he didn’t any more”
Down below at the front of the building – was just another day in Dubai – But sometimes even Impostor gets turned away – like at the Taj Mahal where she was classified as “animal”. She was left at security while stray dogs were roaming inside the grounds.
May’s comment: The last time I was in Dubai, Burg Khalifa was only half way up – so this was one of the things I wanted to go to. We didn’t go up to the observatory deck on the 148th floor as we opted to enjoy the view while having tea in AT-MOSPHERE bar. It was only at the 122nd floor – but that was already higher than any of the other “tall buildings” I’ve visited besides The Shard:
Empire State Building – outdoor viewing platform on the 102nd floor
World Trade Center – outdoor viewing platform on the 110th floor
