The 2010 World expo opens tomorrow here in Shanghai and runs until October 31, 2010. They are expecting over 70 million visitors and the city has spent the past 10 year sprucing up for their guests. We have noticed people working nonstop planting flowers on the side of the expressways and sweeping the sidewalks. The designs of the pavilions are pretty extraordinary and the activities sound pretty cool. There will be snow in the Austrian Pavilion and you can enjoy a picnic or bike ride on the rooftop garden of the Denmark Pavilion! They have planned over 900 parades and countless firework shows.  We are looking forward to visiting the Expo and I will post our pictures.

Wow, I'd forgoten that the world expo would be in Shanghai.

We has season passes to World Expo 88 here in Brisbane Australia. it was like a 5 month party! (I was young..OK not that young...26)

We loved it. One of the highlights for me was seeing the Lincoln Cathedral copy of the Magna Carta on display. THE Magna Carta!
Wonderful, the internation pavilions were amazing.

As if you weren't going to have enough to post about it seems there will be plenty from the expo for the next 6 months. Sounds like a lot of fun.
