If I did, the birds would fly away - it's fun watching them preening and admiring themselves in the glass

No room for trees.. those other two walls visible in the pic are not ours!!
We had no neighbours when we first moved in, now we are surrounded..and they are building them all so close together!

cant wait! I was on the roof this morning having a swim and three extremely fit young men came up - obviously visiting one of the young men! Anyway he pointed out the Burj etc and then said and that is Palm Island!!! I been here since August and didn't know I could see Palm Island! Anyway they cleared off and sure enough you can see the trunk road (inbetween cranes) of the Palm! I was quite impressed!!!
