I love being out to sea, 2 months on a research vessel is heaven. I eagerly read about projects like Freedom Ship and Trilobis and await the days I can shed my terrestrial dwelling. I tried to convince my wife that we should live in an houseboat…we still live on land. With forward politics and Hydropolis and I may be moving to the middle east.
From the industrious Prince of Dubai, who brought the eighth wonder of the world-the Palm Jumeirah, comes the world’s first underwater luxury hotel. The key here is luxury…this is no rennovated research shack like the Jules Underwater Hotel. This is the Waldorf-Astoria 20m down. It will include three sections: the land station, where guests will arrive, the connecting tunnel, which will transport people by train to the main area , and 220 suites within the submarine leisure complex. It is one of the largest contemporary construction projects in the world, covering an area of 260 hectares, about the size of London’s Hyde Park. As always, monetary donations are welcome to send Peter and I to work on our tans, research, and a review for DSN.
