So I have been doing more things recently..
I went to the World Expo in Nagoya. It was massive.. I didn’t get a chance to see most of the bigger sites, as the lines were at least a two hour wait. I went to all the countries epoxs instead. It was brilliant! The Australian one showed of some brilliant 3d animation and in the next room, a massive 12 foot long platypus! There were also slide of Australian areas.. Made me all homesick…
This was the view of Oceaniana pavillions from above..
