DUBAI: Residents erupted in joy today over news that the World Expo 2020 will be held in a city that most will have fled in five years.
“It’s absolutely amazing! I’m so proud of you Dubai!” said Amanda Spart, who is already planning to go back to England next year. “I can’t believe we won. It’s going to be amazing.”
“I really can’t wait!” said Mark Realt, who plans to give Dubai “another two to three years, tops” before returning to the US. “Fantastic job Dubai,” he later tweeted. “Roll on 2020!”
