Two large Dalahorses are the landmarks of the Swedish Pavilion
I don’t wanna bore you with some excuses but here are some reasons why my blog posts have been getting more and more rare lately:
Last week I spent 4 out of 5 mornings at the treadmill at the gym.
The Expo is keeping me super busy.
Last Saturday the Expo officially opened, and so did the Swedish Pavilion. I got up at 4 am and spent the whole day at the Expo area, sweating in the sun and enjoying the festive atmosphere (but not so much the huge crowds). In between press conferences and official opening speeches I managed to snuck out and snap some shots of other pavilions. Getting into those pavilions, however, was simply out of the question. Lines were huge, and at some pavilion (like the hyped, French one) the staff were so rude that I stopped trying after my Chinese workmate had been told to “get out!” after she stood a bit too close to an entrance, chatting to the security staff.
I eventually managed to get into the Belgium/EU Pavilion, simply because I was curious about their hyped chocolate factory. Looked yummy and smelled gorgeous but there was no tasting so I got bored quite quickly and left.
Last night it was time again. This time in order to celebrate 60 years of diplomatic Sino-Swedish relations! A good, but busy night, that unfortunately resulted in so little sleep that there was no way I could run today. Oh well.
This week is going to be busy too, so I better get going and get started. Until next time!

Gorgeous Spanish Pavilion

Mmmmm... heaven! (but I was disappointed that there was no tasting)
Chocolate and smurfs!
It's done, it's finished... and it's pretty!
Absolut bar at the rooftop terrace (of course, what else did you guys think?!)
