Sheikh in space

News on the radio today: Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, a member of the Abu Dhabi ruling family, ordered his workers to carve his name on sand until it was visible from space.

Result? The word HAMAD measures 1,000 meters and runs along 3 kilometers (two miles) of sand on the Al Futaisi island.

Detail… The Sheikh ordered his workers to carve the letters as waterways to ensure his name isn’t washed away by water.


Only in Abu Dhabi
