In 2010 I want to take a trip to where ever they are building this...

... they are working on a neat underwater hotel somewhere (I've heard Istanbul, Fiji, or Dubai). How neat is that! Scott LOVES salty ocean fish aquariums- someday we will probably have one in our house. He'd love to go to a place like this (though the idea of sleeping underwater scares me a little)- They have a neat website too!

It's in Fiji. The ocean is really too shallow in Istanbul.

Can we come too? That place is gorgeous! And once Scott is a doctor he can pay the $15,000 per person charge. Just petty cash, right.

Wow!!!! That looks crazy! I think it would kind of freak me out...

You guys need to go to Honduras and go night shark hunting in the submarine tours!

That looks pretty cool.. I may be scared to sleep underwater too, my imagination is TOO wild..

Actually, they're building it in Dubai. I read about it a year or so ago, when the plans had been drawn up/approved but they hadn't started construction yet. They're always trying to push the limits of architecture and engineering in Dubai--remember it's the Emirates that have built islands in the shape of palm trees and the world in the Persian Gulf.

You can read an article about the underwater hotel here: http://www.designbuild-network.com/projects/Hydropolis/

Pretty interesting, but I'm not sure I'd trust that glass not to burst while I was sleeping!
