I wrote this to help those people who wishes to transfer their drivers license from Ajman to Dubai.

Burj Khalifa also known as Burj Dubai, the tallest building in the world today measuring 828 m tall was inaugurated last night parallel to the 4th year accession of His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

I watch it on the live telecast of Dubai One on TV at home and from the window in my room as it is the actual view from there. It was really a wonderful view.
