If you remember 2 years ago I posted about a UAE Sheikh that engraved his name on the planet. A few days ago I remembered his story and decided to research his name on Google Maps to see if it was complete but found out it completely disappeared. I guess he was he was cutting down on costs by a few million.
I read about a UAE Sheik engraving his first name on a dessert located in Abu Dhabi. So I used Google maps to find the location and there it was. Though it was upside down it still looked surreal. The name is 3,200 meters across and 1000 in height. It’s an island he owns in Al Futaisi, which he got a bit too creative with. I guess that’s one way of leaving your name in history.
