Cool picture from Atyrau

The site I saw this on said it's from December '07. The hotel on the left is new since I was there. Seems like every picture I see from there has new construction in it, which isn't surprising since the place was set to burst wide open even back then. So much opportunity... It's sad think how much the rest of the world has gotten done the last few years while we've wrecked our economy selling over-priced houses to each other.

It's no wonder shops in New York are happily taking euros in payment now. I liked the positive spin that this story tried to put on exactly why shopkeepers have started taking other currencies, but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out the real reason.

If this is your idea of utopia, I fear you need to do a little more research. For someone educated in economics, accounting and law, your views are very limited. That fancy building may dazzle you, but look at the people in the streets. The answer is in freedom and pursuit of happiness for both sexes.
