Shanghai Expo 2010
And so, I was escorted to the Shanghai Expo 2010, essentially the World's Fair of our time. I had first heard of the Expo during a trend presentation at a fashion conference last year, and I literally said to myself, "I'm going to go to that." Now at the time, I was working for my last job where I seldom traveled, and knew a vacation to China wasn't in the cards for me. Funny how things work out, huh? Here I am, now at my new company, and had the opportunity to go see pavilions from over 100 countries at the Shanghai Expo 2010.
Here's the official website of the event - definitely worth checking out if you have a moment. On the DAY I visited, so did over 500,000 others. Can you believe that? Just me and a half million people. This is a big deal in Shanghai, with 95% of the visitors being domestic tourists from China. Over 70 million visitors are expected to attend the Expo before it closes on October 31st of this year.
I'm off to enjoy the rest of my weekend and to make tomorrow's Meatless Monday dish for dinner! Hope you are all enjoying your Sunday!
