This officially-sanctioned (by the French) world exposition occurs from 14 June though 14 September, 2008, in Zaragoza, Spain, the old capital of the Kingdom of Aragon on the Rio Ebro. The official WWW site did not have a lot of information about the Expo; try this Wikipedia entry instead, which has far more information in a more organized manner. There is an official blog (en espanol).
The official mascot of Expo Zaragoza 2008 is Fluvi, the male water drop. I confess to being ignorant that water drops have gender, but then again, this is Spanish, and a noun needs a gender. Fluvi looks like a deformed amphibian, which I suppose is par for the course these days.
Here is Fluvi will his little best friend Ica, who apparently has just one eye and is hermaphroditic. Bummer, Ica. (BOHICA, Ica!)
My wife, who's been there, done that, tells me that Zaragoza has the largest church in the world. She also told me that 14 June - 14 September is not a great time to be there. Can you spell "hot"?
104 countries have signed up to participate; I did not see the USA listed. We must be annoyed with Spain, perhaps because the Spanish Prime Minister, José Zapatero, is a Socialist (but King Juan Carlos did tell Hugo Chávez to shut up, so that must count for something).
Anyway, I'll have to pass on Fluvi, Ica, and their buddies. I'd love to go, but...
