Interesting news from the C, H, and J front. They've found Christmas in the most unlikely place!
Here's a report from NPR.
Two Emirate men look to a Christmas tree which has been decked out with 11 million U.S. dollars (14.3 million euro) worth of gold, at the Emirates Palace hotel, in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, on Thursday Dec. 16, 2010.
Here's news from Dubai via Juju:
Today we wanted to visit the tallest sky scraper in the world, the 828 meter tall Burj Khalifa. Alas, we were not alone in having such desires, so when we arrived at the ticket office we were told the waiting time was 7 hours.
C says there are 3 enormous Christmas trees in the lobby of their hotel!
