Shakira Spending Holidays in Uruguay, Imports Own Xmas Tree

Shakira landed in Punta del Este, Uruguay earlier this week with the three things every girls needs this season. Her boyfriend of 8 years, Antonio de la Rua, her hermano and a big, bristly Christmas tree!

Arriving at the airport, one of Shaki's carry-on's included the enormous tree. We're guessing it must be near impossible to find a Christmas tree in Uruguay, but this must have been totally weird for the airport officials helping them unload their private plane.

Shakira owns a a big farm house in Punta del Este where she frequently escapes to write songs and spend quiet time alone with love ones. The singer plans to spend the entire holiday season in the beautiful resort town, surrounded by friends and family.

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
