PA, you didn't miss out on anything on wam. I wonder what Sheikh Ahmed is doing these days?
Probably watching football matches.
Anyways, do you remember my mentioning, about a certain Ahmed that slept on a gigantic water bed placed on a raft in his bedroom, in our very first thread on the UAE Royalties. Well, it's a our beloved Sheikh Ahmed.
I mistook him for being Sheikh Ahmed bin Rashid.
I have tried to translate the text:
According to reports the so far unmarried sheikh Ahmed ordered the world's biggest water bed to his Palace. But the company could not meet with his need and the end result is a bedroom that consists of a 250 squaremetre indoor swimmingpool with four small islands and the enourmous bed is placed on a raft which rocks the sheikh to sleep. He uses the remote controller to reach one of the man made islands to eat his breakfast. No one else is allowed into his bedroom. His older sister who is somewhere in her 80's is also unmarried and lives in a nearby palace. It is said that she is one of the world's richest women and that she was so well-veiled that no one has actually seen her face. But she is obviously interested in falconry for you'll recognize her palace with all the falcon statues on her port. She lives there throughout the year while her brothers come to their summer palaces to spend two weeks a year. The palaces are never left empty as their staff consisting of appr. 250 people live and take care of their properties throughout the year.
