From IPM editor Martin Palicki
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA — With a giant winter storm set to pummel the Midwest, I’m sitting here reflecting on the humidity and warmth of Shanghai this past summer during the Expo. I thought it might be fun to pull out some of the photos from that most interesting of events.
Australia’s entertaining theater-in-the-round.
Hungary’s unusual lumber-heavy pavilion.
The entertaining “falling balls” show at the Shanghai Corporate pavilion.
IPM writer and photographer Ed Wills poses on one of the medal stands from the Vancouver Olympics.
Artsy-architectural excessiveness at the Oil pavilion.
Inside Spain’s pavilion.

More LEDs, this time around the highways circling the expo.

Of course, no Chinese photo-review would be complete without some mention of the…..interesting…..Chinese to English translations that occur.
Unusual Chinese concept of US geography (though, really, how many American’s could place Chinese cities on a map? Most probably couldn’t even locate China!)
1000RMB for a night with a Russian bartender is actually kind of a good deal.
My favorite “version” of the Expo’s theme BETTER CITY, BETTER LIFE.
Kids wonder where babies come from. Now we can at least tell them that they grow from a steady supply of milk.
