Okay, this was something I had sworn I wouldn't do...don't like heights. I love looking at the Burj Khalifa everyday. I never tire of it's beauty and last Wednesday had the privilege of eating dinner at the Armani hotel at it's base. Looking up at the tower at night with a full moon is hard to beat, but...this morning to prepare for taking 60 authors there as part of the social programme for the Emirates Airlines Literary Festival I went to the top...GULP. So I stepped into the lift and said my prayers (to myself) and we were there in 60 seconds...124 floors.
