you're welcome Andre and thanks too.
I checked your trip to Brussels and the photos are nice.
they brought me memories when I visited the city - particularly the
Grand Place and the manikin pis and the lying Virgin Mary. the restaurants
in those narrow streets are really good.

thanks all and to Chris, aster, DWest, Ni3IS and Andre for checking my thread..

Pavilions were contructed for each Canadian province and some houses for some participating countries but I only have few photos of them.

197. BC pavilion is obviously temporarily constructed atop the Vancouver Art Gallery


198. Ontario Pavilion


199. Quebec Pavilion (Cube building) & Saskatchewan Pavilion (round building)


200. Alberta Pavilion


201. First Nation Pavilion


202. First Nation - another Pavilion


203. Irish house - like a pub with a playing band. I didn't go inside as it was a full house.


204. Russian house which is part of the Science World
