The Xi'an Expo official website has more details about the event http://en.expo2011.cn/# It goes on for six months so you still have time to visit. These photos were from the same day I was in the performance; see "The Big Show." I just have taken a really long time to go through all of the photos. We got in for the day of the performance which was in the morning. We had the afternoon free so we could walk around the expo the rest of the day. I will make two posts this one is mostly flowers. Being a horticulture expo flowers were everywhere. The second part is a charming little ceramics workshop that I ran into around the back of the expo park. You can make your own ceramic art, admire the small art gallery and buy several functional pieces. Location was poor but I was very pleased to stumble upon it. Enjoy!
