UAE Tourism: Searching for a Squared Enclave

Tourists are attracted to different things in different places.

George Walther (who I have never heard about until today) is a visitor to the UAE and he recently wrote in his blog about his UAE travel hopes:

“I’m going to visit the enclave of “Nahwa” a tiny territory that’s part of Sharjah, one of the United Arab Emirates. So, there’s lonely Nahwa completely surrounded by the Omani territory of “Madha.” But wait, it’s not that simple! Madha, part of Oman, is itself cut off from the rest of Oman and is itself completely encircled by the United Arab Emirates. Isn’t that reason enough to go?

For more on his travel plans check George Walther’ ‘Speaking from Experience’ web site and his 23 May 2007 post, ‘A Squared Enclave; Isn’t That Reason Enough?’
