My favourite pavilions are the Espana, China and South Korea. I think the Malaysia one looks really small!

Edit: ok, it's just me
In fact, the ancient name of China in India can be translated as "Aurora" just as well as Japan's name in China can be translated as "source [root] of the sun"... the slight difference in the first character is to differentiate that particular meaning of "Aurora".

The Culture Center looks amazing!

One thing that I notice is that there´s a lot of garbage on the floor...I understand that there must be a lot of informative/adds/whatever papers but seems like they all end up on the ground And it seems there´s a lack of WC´s

Rotterdam (2nd biggest city in the Netherlands) has it's own pavillion on the Shanghai Expo.











CNN also reported that lots of visitors are unhappy because of the heath and the long que's. Mainly at the American, Canadian and Dutch pavillion (the most popular ones).
