Easily one of the most memorable times in my life thus far was the World Expo in Shanghai. I'm still amazed at how lucky we all were for choosing to study abroad in China and then discovering that the Expo was being hosted in Shanghai. The architecture of all the buildings were miraculous. It was extraordinary seeing all of the unique designs and ideas that were put into each and every building. In my opinion, I thought the most unique was Spain's pavilion which consisted of almost 600 woven baskets. Google it to see what I mean (for all those readers from back home). Very cool. Even though we studied only in China, I feel like experiencing the Expo gave me insight into many other cultures.
