Palm Jumeirah

In the Persian Gulf, near Dubai, they’re building some artificial resort islands in the shape of date palms. (Google Earth KMZ file).  You should also check out this real estate site about them.  Particularly the little video file.  I’m trying to figure out where women are allowed to show their ankles in this place — apparently on yachts and in the spa, but not on the beach.  Apparently Beckham and several other British soccer stars have bought homes there already.  Weird place, Dubai.  According to this article, sort of Las Vegas on the Persian Gulf.
