    Multinational tour in Lut Desert on Christmas

    Christmas Eve is the time when Christians all over the world get together to have a warm wonderful night, forgetting about everything else, and just having fun and enjoy themselves accompanying their loved ones, families, and friends.

    What if this year you can have an extra-ordinary Christmas Eve on the sand, in a vast desert, under the starry night, feeling closer than ever to the Milky Way Galaxy, gathering around a roaring fire with a group of people coming from different parts of the world having different nationalities, different languages and different customs, but sharing a single reason: love! A love that excludes no one on this green planet, a love that connects each and every one of us together, a love that brings peace. A global peace we have always wished for!
