Haibao @ World Expo 2010 in Shanghai

This cool ELVIS-like (and Gumby too!) mascot can be seen everywhere across Shanghai!
This is who I think Haibao looks like!

ps - Wikipedia ...
World Expositions are galleries of human inspirations and thoughts. Since 1851 when the Great Exhibition of Industries of All Nations was held in London, the World Expositions have attained increasing prominence as grand events for economic, scientific, technological and cultural exchanges, serving as an important platform for displaying historical experience, exchanging innovative ideas, demonstrating esprit de corps and looking to the future.
With a long civilisation, China favours international exchange and loves world peace. China owes its successful bid for the World Exposition in 2010 to the international community's support for and confidence in its reform and opening-up. The Exposition will be the first registered World Exposition in a developing country, which gives expression to the expectations the world's people place on China's future development.
Time: May 1 to October 31, 2010
Location: Waterfront of the Huangpu River between Nanpu Bridge and Lupu Bridge, downtown Shanghai.
