  1. Expo 2017 report

    It was very similar, though with some tweaks that meant less scrummy at individual consoles - I wasn't that keen either
  2. It does look like a model of a bateriaphage - maybe the display to the left is a world map showing where a particular virus is active
  3. Hostess Uniform

    I think she, and the suit, look great
  4. Argentina for Expo 2023

    I was hoping for Łódź (and had learned how to pronounce it) - but the Buenos Ares master plan looks sound on the expo website: http://en.expo2023argentina.com/masterplan/ and I certainly hope to go
  5. Argentina for Expo 2023

    Hi all, Not on the BIE web site yet - but according to their twitter page https://twitter.com/bieparis it will be Argetina for the next specialise exhibition
  6. Viva Las Vegas

    Dreadful thing - must have been so frightening Glad you are OK
  7. As the fair is much busier after noon the queues for even Korea and the sphere are quite short early on For us just 10 mins for both Korea and for the sphere
  8. Architectural thesis topic

    Hello Amysh, I don't know much about architecture and lead times - but I;m wondering if there will be enough (peer-revied/any kind) ofliterature about the pavilion in the timescales necessary for your thesis? Perhaps a pavilion from an earlier exposition would yield more results? The Iranian pavilion in Milan 2015 was stunning. As were the UAE, Venke and Azerbaijan pavilions. The first two designed by famous architects (Foster and libeskind) so likely to be a lot of literature and opinion about them. There could also be an opportunity to consider relocated pavilions (Chile in 1889, UAE in 2010 and planned Monaco and UAE from 2015) and how planning for this constrains design. Good luck
  9. though the fact that it was absent meant one of the few trips to World's Fairs when I have returned and collegues knew about it: several Swedish collegues had travelled across the bridge to Copenhagen and seen the video link to Shanghai
  10. Hi blueexpo, Because of your post I kept an eye out when i was there - and it's slim pickings. I suspect a vegetarian would always say that meat is pointless, but I'm a meat eater and I'd get a dish that was mainly rice (plov/pilaf) - and it would have been fine like that - but there were dollops of meat on it. Even the meat free section of the German pavilion menu had only one vegetarian dish - the other two had fish in it. (the vegetable pancakes were nice though) Someone said that the Kazakhstan population were the second biggest meat eaters in the world - so that might be the cause.
  11. Hello, Just come back from Astana - and yes passports are available and most national pavilions are providing stamps. BUT it does seem as though supplies of the books are not getting distributed to all the merchandise outlets / or they are being filtered out with most supplies going to the shop within the Kazakhstan pavilion. (And other shops and volunteers telling people that that;s where to go) As I said most national pavilions have stamps (some gaps in Africa plaza), Almost all with someone doing the stamping rather than it be help yourself which is understandable given pilfering in earlier expos - but it does mean that if a pavilion is a one person operation and on a break then you miss out. One person operation commoner in the plazas. Japan only stamps between 12 at 6 (the busiest hours) - and I stupidly forgot to return - ach South Korea has a stack of stamps from which to choose and a pair of stampers.
  12. I wonder why the flags were at half mast

    The former Japanese prime minister died in August - maybe for him (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hayato_Ikeda)
  13. A Brief Look at Korea

    > found the design a bit intriguing. To me it looks like a styalised carp
  14. Expo 2017 Report

    Hi CofP33, Did you notice if/where a gift shop was on site? Just with the aim of getting a passport early in my visit (assuming there are any!) Tia wf256
  15. Hi all, For those going to Astana, this map of food and drink locations: There is a Line Brew restaurant in Astan itself which gets good reviews - I'm guessing that this is a branch of the same Regards
