Clanking under cloak of night

Every night at midnight, the clanking begins. Not far from Cell Block G, strange, secretive heavy construction work is taking place on Nakheel's cracked, long-ago evacuated Garden View villas.

There may be a simple explanation why this noisy, heavy building work is done under cloak of darkness. Perhaps the machinery is used on other sites during the daytime.

But for labourers working in dangerously low visibility, and nearby inmates disturbed from their sleep night after night, it is a strange and sad affair.

Maybe they're paving paradise to put up a parking lot.

Judging by the time of night (morning) you normally post SD, I'd imagine they were disturbing your work rather than your sleep!

My guess is that they're excavating it for materiaon to build the exciting! new! "100dhs Tourism and Leisure Project."

My only question with that is: there are supposed to be "100 [movie] theaters." All showing the same four new movies? All the movies running at exactly same time?
