What happens when you flush a toilet in the world's tallest building?

What happens when you flush a toilet in the world's tallest building? | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates displays an image that is hyper-modern, sophisticated and technologically advanced.  The "Mall of the Emirates" even has a ski lift in it.  Dubai is now home to the tallest skyscraper in the world, matching that image perfectly.

 

But is this perception that is carefully choreographed the full picture?  When you flush in this magnificent building, the waste is removed by truck.  This jarring juxtaposition of cosmopolitanism and under-developed infrastructure shows an intriguing glimpse to the inner workings of urban and economic geographies of the UAE.
