Expo 2010's Japan Pavilion

I've stitched together still photos and video I took at the Japan Pavilion at Expo 2010 and put them online.

Be aware that it's silent when the still photos are up, so don't be startled when the sound starts.

A Special Appeal: Get the USA back into the BIE

Folks from all over the United States are talking about having their city host a world's fair in 2020.

To make this happen, the United States needs to rejoin the BIE, the Bureau International des Expositions, and pay back dues from the years we've missed since pulling out of the organization in 2003.

Contact your senator and representative and tell them to restore funding to the BIE: http://www.USA-BIE.org/
