A few years ago,on the roughly 7-hour drive from Madrid to Barcelona,a girlfriend and I took a break in Zaragoza,a town neither of us knew much about. It was one of those fortuitous,split-second decisions you always hope for when traveling: the sun was suddenly out,the town square we stumbled into was full of people—and Zaragoza,at that particular moment,couldn’t help but be utterly charming. We strolled past a majestic church and made our way to a fantastic local restaurant,where we drank good beer and sampled a few dishes I can’t remember,except that I’ve never had anything like them again.
I hadn’t thought much about Zaragoza since,until I came across the news that World Expo 2008 will take place in the city from June 14-September 14. The Expo will address the theme of ‘water and sustainable development, ’ emphasizing the critical role that increasingly imperiled water resources play in our lives. The Expo’ssays that the event will take place on a thousand square meters of exhibition space and launch three notable new buildings: the largestin Europe (5, 000 specimens,including giant Nile crocodiles!),the,which has a floor shaped like a water droplet,and the(above),a stunning,two-story span that drops pedestrians onto the main Expo site.
There’s architectural buzz around the Bridge Pavilion,especially,which spans the River Ebro. The structure,which functions as both an exhibit space and a main entry point for the Expo,was designed by Iraqi-born architectural superstar Zaha Hadid,the first woman to win the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize (2004). The bridge takes its inspiration,and its sinuous form,from the river it crosses. Expo planners expect as many as 10, 000 visitors per hour to the Bridge Pavilion,and over 7.5 million total visitors to the Expo during its 3-month run.
Zaragoza is about 250 kilometers (just over 150 miles) from both Madrid and Barcelona,making it a relatively easy trip from Spain’s two largest cities. For a comprehensive map of the Expo grounds,click .

Comic Con II
Bad- bad- food,
Awful cold unpalatable mushy pizza with plastic
Need some Vodka but itâs only
Line at the barâs too long anyway.
Standing round the circle under an
Maze of wires, lights and perfect perching places
What brings all these brunettes to Comic Con?
Dark hair, dark eyes, dark comic, dark mind,
World of outsiders all together under one
Every color glaring bright
