I thought this was pretty interesting:

Each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own.  Populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness. An epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.

What Goes Up – Chicago, Illinois

I still feel like a tourist in any big city. I just love looking up, seeing the buildings jutting thousands of feet in to the sky. I think I’ll definitely need to put Dubai on the ‘to do’ list just to see the world’s tallest building (for now).
