World Expo

I've never been to the World Expo.

This year's affair takes place in Shanghai, China. There are pavilions of each country represented at the Expo, allowing visitors a glimpse into the way others around the world live. I guess it is something akin to a World's Fair or even Disney's Epcot World Showcase. The event in Shanghai takes place from May to October of this year. The city has prepared for thousands of visitors, upgrading sidewalks and even expanding its subway system, adding stops to service the fair. Included in the over 200 pavilions are Switzerland's resembling a map with a rooftop chairlift, Macau resembling a walk through bunny, and the United Arab Emirates portrayed as a sand dune.

That I'd like to see.
