Besides all the craziness I had to go through this weekend like The Peaches concert ( was enough kuku, just was wondring what that guy on the stage was using to make him look so so strange/scared/stoned).
So to prove my self that I am still intelectual human beeing and not just party animal, I spent all finaly sunny Saturday in Shanghai on my bike and had a nice sightseeing and saw some nice exhibitions. So the firts one on my list was ( finaly) fashion exhibition Swedish Fashion - Exploring a New Identity at the River South Art Center in Shanghai.( really love this venue)
Oh I went to Expo site as well, but didn't have camera/phone with me, so I couldnt take any photo, but all i can say - my favoritepavilions so far are UK, Poland and The Netherlands.
