Nothing at all to do with food, exercise, weight or the like but I am absolutely stunned by this. Can it be the most beautiful modern building in the world?

I thought some of the mosques in Istanbul were pretty amazing but this one, the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi, leaves me breathless. I'd seen a single photograph and had thought the designs on the pillars were painted, and that was wonderful... but they are even more amazing than I'd realised.

Looks like I'll be saving my pennies to visit Abu Dhabi in the next few years.

Wow, just looking at some of the pictures in the slideshow, and they almost seem surreal they're so beautiful! Thanks for sharing that.
