They even have Egyptian pyramids, Eiffel Towers, everything!
I heard that they were even thinking about making fake hurricanes for publicity purposes!!!
How much would it cost to buy one? Would look nice in the sitting room. Bought a lava lamps for the bedroom for when the action goes down, though zinakunywa stima bila jokes
