Shanghai World Expo 2010 (part 2)

It took us a little under an hour to get to the expo.  Trying to hail a taxi cab successfully during Mooncake season in China is almost as likely as me seeing Brad Pitt in person any day of the year.  And so, walk we did to the nearest bus station.  Unfortunately, the bus took us to the Gate 1 stop, which as previously mentioned is home to the Corporate Pavilions.  After recovering from the initial shock of not seeing any familiar Country Pavilions, we decided best to just take everything in and go back the next day for more.

Corporate Pavilions, according to my trusty Expo booklet, are participating enterprises with good solid reputations.  Located in the Puxi section, they occupy around 110 square meters of the entire expo and has around 16 showcase pavilions that are either sponsored by their industry association or independently built.  Mostly, they showcase hardwares, product commercials and such.  I took solace in the fact that I was extremely loving the interplay of lights on the structures.

I just really love the interplay of light on the structures.
