2 years, 1 month ago 19

Leaving Dubai The bribe requested by security to access this roof was fairly typical in Dubai, we were told – 100 dirhams per person.

Busan From Above – Gotham City Standing on the helipad of this colossal building, we knew we had a great vantage point from which to watch, and shoot, the Busan fireworks festival.
