OK, got here after the entrance gates have closed for the night, but the Expo was open for another two hours.  First task, getting by 3 Chinese police officers that don’t speak English.  Hmm…. pleading? bribing? offering one of the designers that was with us?  I’ll just try and reason with them in English, that should work.

Success!!!!  We’re in, even past another guarded entrance, blending through the masses leaving we were able to get in. Ha!
The China Pavilion was by far the largest, and most popular exhibit to visit.  Hard to really grasp how big it was in real life.  Ever seen the show “V”?
