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.
Two Emarati girls got so fed up of seeing indecency when it comes to uniform in their country they set up an organization. “Freedom and Respect are given as long as you are not abusing them” is their motto. Malls are cooperating and putting signs up to raise awareness. I know Emarati friends that are very upset over the way some people dress (mostly females) in UAE. I guess someone finally took a stand, maybe we should have something similar in Kuwait.
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.
