World Expo 2010 Shanghai China FDC

Today being the closing day of the World Expo, I seize this opportunity to publish a FDC I received from a relative a few weeks ago.

Expo 2010, officially Expo 2010 Shanghai China (simplified Chinese: 中国2010年上海世界博览会; pinyin: Zhōngguó Èrlíngyīlíng Nián Shànghǎi Shìjìe Bólǎnhuì), is being held on both banks of the Huangpu River in the city of Shanghai, China, from May 1 to October 31, 2010.  It is a World Expo in the tradition of international fairs and expositions.  The theme of the exposition is "Better City – Better Life" and signifies Shanghai's new status in the 21st century as the "next great world city".  The expo Logo features the Chinese character 世 ('world', Chinese "shì") modified to represent three people together with the 2010 date.  It has the largest number of countries participating and is the most expensive Expo in the history of the world's fairs.  The Shanghai World Expo is also the largest World's Fair site ever at 5.28 square km.
