World Exhibition in Shanghai

"Expo 2010 (simplified Chinese: 2010上海世界博览会 Pinyin:Shànghǎi shìjiè bólǎnhuì) will be held in the city of Shanghai, China from May 1 to October 31, 2010 and is a scheduled World Expo in the tradition of international fairs and expositions. The theme of the exposition will be "Better City – Better Life" and signifies Shanghai's new status in the 21st century as a major economic and cultural center . It is expected to generate the largest number of visitors in the history of the world's fairs in terms of gross numbers. The expo Logo features the Chinese character 世 ('world') modified to represent three people together with the 2010 date.

More than 190 countries and more than 50 international organizations have registered to participate in the Shanghai World Expo. China expects to receive almost 100 foreign leaders and millions of people from across the world to come and visit the World Expo. 70 million visitors are expected, the largest in history"   -wikipedia-

So basically, each country from all over the world will build a pavilion to symbolize their country with a theme. Let's see the construction of some of the pavilions :
Malaysia (One Malaysia, City Harmonious Living)
I've lost my way with the rests. Don't know which pavilion belongs to which country :P
Isn't this cute? Like a furry ball or something :P
Anyone going to Shanghai? Please please go here. I wish I could :(
