Here we go, my Expo photos are ready. A historic event, the first time that the World Exposition has been hosted by a developing nation. The great city of Shanghai has been preparing for the past 9 years, spending billions. Her citizens have quietly endured the construction, the traffic restrictions, the constant media attention. But I have no doubt that this will be a stunning 6 months. The Expo has changed Shanghai forever, and I'm thankful that I was able to witness it from the start.
The official opening was on May 1, but through a bit of luck and generosity, I was able to get my hands on 2 preview tickets on April 20, the very first day it was opened to the public. Spent hours walking through the enormous compound on both sides of the river. Those stories, coming up next.DF
