Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Unveils Godolphin River City
This past evening in Dubai, the annual and much anticipated Arabian Nights was celebrated. Some view it has a pre-celebration to the Dubai World Cup, the richest horse race in the world, that takes place 2 days later. It was my first time experiencing this event and it was one of the most overwhelming evenings of entertainment I have ever experienced! Your senses are wonderfully assualted, especially your visual sense. Amidst dramatic and moving scores of music, cultural and creative dance performances, and one of the most spectacular fireworks show I have ever seen, His Royal Highness, the UAE Prime Minister and Vice-President, and Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, unveiled the plans for Godolphin River City to the public and generously invited the guests to come to the centre platform to view a realistic and to scale model of GRC. The crowd roared with approval as this magical city was also displayed on a theatre size screen in a dramatic computer generated film. Again the Maktoum Royal Family are taking the world by storm as they grow Dubai at an unprecedented rate with this new addition to their domain that will be sure to continue to draw people to Dubai from all over the world when completed.
