What's This?

What this is, apart from being a terrible photo, is a mobile phone mast disguised as a palm tree. You'd think it was real if it wasn't about four times taller than the normal Dubai palms, and didn't have the visible operational gubbins nestled in the foliage at the top. But what really gives it away are the rungs up the trunk, and the Etisalat shed at the bottom.

You can see this attempt at urban beautification beside the Burj Al Arab roundabout.

In South Africa they have two types - palm tree lookalikes and fir tree lookalikes. Once, they erected a fir tree one in the wrong place and had to take it down after a while ... , some elderly people complained, saying that they had played in that tree when they were younger and now it was being destroyed!!
