Shanghai, January 2010. Mostly pictures.

This is Ren. He was everywhere. He is the mascot for Shanghai's 2010 World Expo, which is a big deal in Shanghai, Beijing got the Olympics, Shanghai got the Expo. They were rennovating lots of buildings, so there was lots of construction when we were visiting. Ren means "the people" in chinese and the mascot looks similar to the Chinese character for Ren, 人.
