This is a Friday choice – not strictly relevant but rather amazing. Eighteen years after an aircraft exploded over the Sahara desert, the relatives of those who died came to the crash site to build a memorial. In one of the least accessible places on earth, the families had to truck stones from 70 km away. They also used parts of the aircraft that were still scattered in the desert. This website tells the story in beautiful photos – with the last revealing how the finished memorial looks on Google Earth. Incredible.
