Missed last week’s roundup? check it out here.


Of course I had to use a picture of two adorable children at Expo. My mom was twelve when she visited. And here’s a fun tidbit about Expo: The main hub for Expo was the Place D’Accueil, which means, more or less “welcome place.” English-speaking tourists were told to tell their taxi drivers to take them to the “plastic eye,” because it’s (apparently) very difficult for English-speakers to make the “euil” sound. Pretty cool, huh? I hope you enjoyed this Expo-themed roundup. If you did, please consider sharing this post on the social media platform of your choice. And don’t forget to check back on Tuesday for a special guest post! See you then!
