Ok, this may not be an explore but a trip to the viewing deck, but hey it's tallest building in the world.

The building was finished in September 2009 but didn't officially open until January 2010 when it's name was changed from Burj Dubai to Burj Khalifa as a token of appreciation to Sheikh Khalifa for paying off masses of Dubai's debts. Also the finished height was unveiled, 828 meters. Apparently the name change costs Dubai millions.

Photos are taken from the viewing deck on the 124th floor, fooking high.

Whilst up there I took a moment to remember what Downfallen had actually achieved at this very tower, a moment of sadness really to such an inspirational guy.
